TELFAIR MUSEUMS

Suzanne Jackson: Five Decades

Edited with text by Rachel Reese. Foreword by Betye Saar. Text by Aberjhani, Tiffany E. Barber, Melanee C. Harvey, Julia Elizabeth Neal.

Suzanne Jackson: Five Decades

Painter of vibrant assemblages and champion of African American art, Suzanne Jackson receives her first monograph

Published on the occasion of the first full-career survey of Savannah-based artist Suzanne Jackson (born 1944) at the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia, Five Decades illuminates a career that spans more than 50 years, across painting, drawing, theatre, costume design, dance, printmaking and sculpture. The book presents a unique selection of Jackson's artworks and explicates their relationships to identity, community, the natural world and the human body.

In addition to featuring new photo documentation and archival images, the book includes essays that contextualize Jackson's practice through the lenses of ecowomanism, materiality, an ethics of care and African American retentions.

Five Decades complicates canonical and exclusionary narratives and timelines, opening up Jackson's work to new generations of artists, thinkers and doers to find inspiration in the singular contributions one person can make to collective culture.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Black Art in America

Shantay Robinson

People tend to think it’s only black art when you see a black figure in it,’ but Jackson believes that what she creates is black art because she is a black artist…. As a model of steadfastness to her practice, the trajectory of Jackson’s career is astounding given African American artists from past generations are only now receiving overdue credit for their work.

Frieze

Chase Quinn

That Jackson’s own artistic career has remained relatively under the radar feels, in truth, less of a paradox and more simply a reflection of the times in which she was emerging as a black woman abstractionist – an indictment of the art world’s fixation on the very labels to which she has refused to conform.

Artnet

Melissa Smith

As [Jackson] watched people living in the South—including those who had struggled more than she could ever imagine—her work began to reflect her impression of who they were, and their intimate thoughts…. For Jackson, these pieces have spirit and memory and always seem to reinhabit the shape they were meant to have.
