Kerry James Marshall: Look See

Text by Robert Storr. Interview by Angela Choon.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Kerry James Marshall: Look See</i>.Over the course of almost three decades, Kerry James Marshall (born 1955) has produced a complex body of work exploring the representation of African Americans in society, culture and art history. Working across various media in portraits, interiors, nudes and landscapes, Marshall conflates actual and imagined events from African American history and culture and integrates a range of stylistic influences to address the limited historiography of black art. Produced on the occasion of the artist's first exhibition at David Zwirner in London, this volume features reproductions of 14 new paintings (the majority of which are portraits of subjects whose disassociated stares suggest the differences between "looking" and "seeing"), as well as preparatory drawings, details and new scholarship by Robert Storr. Taken all together, the range of materials included in Kerry James Marshall: Look See constitutes a vibrant portrait of Marshall's original and ever-evolving practice.

Kerry James Marshall: Look See

Kerry James Marshall: Look See

In Kerry James Marshall: Look See by David Zwirner Books, noted art historian Robert Storr describes "Untitled (Red Line)" (2014), pictured here, by the MacArthur-genius-award-winning, Metropolitan-Museum-of-Art-retrospective-having artist as pushing "most of the panic buttons of 'good taste' while offering, to those less hemmed in by 'white' norms, a glimpse of what high-style 'Other' kinds can look like." The red line "runs like a wound right through the face and body of the stylishly dressed woman who raises her dark glasses to look out at whoever is looking in at her… Behind her is a perfectly calibrated gray scale with a white ray at its center that dead ends in the wide black band that traverses the painting horizontally and presses her forward from behind. Thus ebony and ivory and scarlet exchange their latent symbolic meanings like electric charges arcing between proximate poles, amidst which stands a human subject." continue to blog

Kerry James Marshall is one of T Magazine's 'Greats'

Kerry James Marshall is one of T Magazine's 'Greats'

This week, The New York Times' T Magazine celebrates seven people who are redefining our culture with seven unique covers. These include first lady Michelle Obama, pop performer Lady Gaga, designer Junya Watanabe, chef Massimo Bottura, writer Zadie Smith, photographer William Eggleston and painter Kerry James Marshall, whose career retrospective opens this week at The Met Breuer. The idea of the paintings, Wyatt Mason quotes Marshall, "is that blackness is non-negotiable in those pictures. It’s also unequivocal — they are black — that’s the thing that I mean for people to identify immediately. They are black to demonstrate that blackness can have complexity. Depth. Richness." continue to blog

Kerry James Marshall: Look See, Beach Towel

Currently on view at MCA Chicago, where Kerry James Marshall is having his critically acclaimed (and long overdue) first major American museum retrospective, “Untitled (Beach Towel)” (2014) is reproduced from Kerry James Marshall: Look See, David Zwirner Books’ excellent recent monograph. The Chicago Tribune called Marshall's life's work "an explicit and prescient statement, in paint, that black lives matter." continue to blog

Kerry James Marshall: Look See

Kerry James Marshall: Look See, Untitled (Rapunzel)

"I'm acutely aware of and obsessively invested in how the narrative of art history is structured, and the burden that history imposes on artists ambitious enough to dream of being part of it," painter Kerry James Marshall is quoted in Look See, published by David Zwirner Books. "Black artists have not really been significant players in that narrative for very long. It's only in the mid-twentieth century that you start seeing black people making artworks that were thought important enough to talk about in relationship to that history. So the challenge is to gain an uncontestable place in the pantheon of art history without surrendering the desire to make pictures with black figures." Featured image is "Untitled (Rapunzel)" (2014). continue to blog
