How we love the books and prints of Louise Bourgeois in MoMA's 'An Unfolding Portrait'

Featured image is the last of eight plates from Louise Bourgeois’ 1990 illustrated book, the puritan. It is reproduced from Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait, published to accompany the major MoMA survey of the artist’s prints and books on view starting September 24. The text on the verso side reads, “Later on he died right in his factory of refinement. Everyone worth talking about cried and cried. Of course no one could see his soul, not even his wife. But they said that his body was dry and they think he was a puritan.”

Black artist as superhero: Barkley L. Hendricks in 'Soul of a Nation'

Barkley L. Hendricks’ riveting 1969 self-portrait—titled Icon for My Man Superman (Superman Never Saved any Black People—Bobby Seale)—is reproduced from Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, the catalog to the blockbuster survey currently on view at Tate (and coming soon to Crystal Bridges and the Brooklyn Museum). “The work’s subtitle invites a declarative statement of solidarity with the Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale,” co-curator Zoé Whitley writes. “But Hendricks makes evident another position: here we find the Black artist as superhero, painting himself into history rather than waiting for someone else to confer the honor upon him.”

What can we learn from 'Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power'?

Emma Amos’s “Eva the Babysitter” (1973) is reproduced from Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power, the catalog to the blockbuster survey currently on view at Tate, London. Called “angry, zestful, ebullient, sardonic, wildly energetic, powerfully direct, occasionally sorrowful and tentative,” by the Guardian and “one of the shows of the year” by the Telegraph, this show—and the book—became more timely than ever the minute violence erupted in Charlottesville last month, as pointed out by Roslyn Sulcas in the New York Times. “Successfully layering a broader socio-historical narrative onto a period of radical non-conformity, this is an important show, now,” Sulcas writes. Featuring work by Sam Gilliam, Jack Whitten, Howardena Pindell, Romare Bearden, David Hammons, Barkley L. Hendricks and Betye Saar, among others, this fully illustrated hardcover is being released by D.A.P. now in the United States, just in time to enlighten the current political moment, and five months before the show is set to open at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas, where it will be on view from February 3rd through April 23, 2018. The show then continues its tour, opening at the Brooklyn Museum September 7th, 2018 and running through February 3rd, 2019.
