Todd Gray: Euclidean Gris Gris

Edited with introduction by Rebecca McGrew. Introduction by Hannah Grossman. Text by Todd Gray, Nana Adusei-Poku, M. Neelika Jayawardane, Carrie Mae Weems.

Todd Gray: Euclidean Gris Gris

Photographic critiques of colonialism’s legacies, from a leading interrogator of cultural iconography

This is the most comprehensive publication to date of the multimedia works of American artist Todd Gray (born 1954). Superbly produced, with a two-piece foil-stamped cover, beautiful endpapers and an insert documenting a yearlong series of events inspired by Gray’s work, Euclidean Gris Gris features a selection of recent photographic works derived from his exploration of the legacies of colonialism in Africa and several other seminal works.

Based in Los Angeles and Ghana, Gray is best known for photography, performance and sculpture that address histories of power in relationship to the African Diaspora. In the new works featured in the catalog, Gray combines photographs from his archive, which he has assembled over decades, including his pictures of individuals and rural scenes in South Africa and Ghana, formal gardens of imperial Europe, constellations and galaxies, and images of musicians, such as Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. The volume also includes a conversation between Gray and the artist Carrie Mae Weems.


"Samita" (2018) is reproduced from 'Todd Gray: Euclidean Gris Gris.'

In Todd Gray's work, beauty as weapon and comment on colonialism

In Todd Gray's work, beauty as weapon and comment on colonialism

This detail of "Euclidean Gris Gris (Love and Happiness)" (2019) is reproduced from Todd Gray: Euclidean Gris Gris, the artist's provocative, generous and superbly produced monograph exploring of the legacy of colonialism in Africa, which he will be signing today at Frieze Los Angeles. "I wanted to broaden the scope of the conceptual foundation of my thinking," Gray says in conversation with artist Carrie Mae Weems, "I wanted to create a wider opening for folks to enter into a dialogue with my work, and I wanted to use beauty as a weapon. It was important to me to explore how… European gardens developed due to riches historically acquired through the slave trade and through African colonization. We see these gardens and we don’t realize where the wealth came from to create them… I think the gardens are a way to talk about Western man's need to control nature, bodies, surroundings." continue to blog
