Edited with essay by Antwaun Sargent. Text by Graham C. Boettcher, Jessica Bell Brown, Connie H. Choi, Anthony Graham, Lauren Haynes, Jamillah James, Thomas J. Lax, Hallie Ringle, Adeze Wilford, Gordon Dearborn Wilkins, Matt Wycoff. Interview with Bernard Lumpkin by Thelma Golden.

What’s new, now and next from contemporary Black artists

This book surveys the work of a new generation of Black artists, and also features the voices of a diverse group of curators who are on the cutting edge of contemporary art. As mission-driven collectors, Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi have championed emerging artists of African descent through museum loans and institutional support. But there has never been an opportunity to consider their acclaimed collection as a whole until now.

Edited by writer Antwaun Sargent (author of The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art and Fashion), Young, Gifted and Black draws from this collection to shed new light on works by contemporary artists of African descent. At a moment when debates about the politics of visibility within the art world have taken on renewed urgency, and establishment voices such as the New York Times are declaring that “it has become undeniable that African American artists are making much of the best American art today,” Young, Gifted and Black takes stock of how these new voices are impacting the way we think about identity, politics and art history itself.

Young, Gifted and Black contextualizes artworks with contributions from artists, curators and other experts. It features a wide-ranging interview with Bernard Lumpkin and Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem; and an in-depth essay by Antwaun Sargent situating Lumpkin in a long lineage of Black art patrons. A landmark publication, this book illustrates what it means (in the words of Nina Simone) to be young, gifted and Black in contemporary art.

Artists include: Mark Bradford, David Hammons, Glenn Ligon, Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Adam Pendleton, Pope.L, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Henry Taylor, Mickalene Thomas, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Sadie Barnette, Kevin Beasley, Jordan Casteel, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Bethany Collins, Noah Davis, Cy Gavin, Allison Janae Hamilton, Tomashi Jackson, Samuel Levi Jones, Deana Lawson, Norman Lewis, Eric N. Mack, Arcmanoro Niles, Jennifer Packer, Christina Quarles, Jacolby Satterwhite, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Sable Elyse Smith, Chanel Thomas, Stacy Lynn Waddell, D’Angelo Lovell Williams, Brenna Youngblood, and more.

'Young, Gifted and Black: A New Generation of Artists' is Back in Stock!

Vaughn Spann's "Staring back at you, rooted and unwavering" (2018) is reproduced from Young, Gifted and Black: A New Generation of Artists, one of our top Holiday Gift Books for Art Lovers 2020, back in stock at last after the first printing sold out immediately upon initial release. Based on the renowned collection of Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi, this is a book for all serious home, academic and museum art libraries, presenting more than forty of the most interesting and influential rising Black artists today, alongside a host of artists from previous generations who helped pave the way. "The majority of the four hundred plus artworks in the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection provide a diverse reflection of the past decade in black artistic production," editor Antwaun Sargent writes. "The paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and drawings speak broadly to the notion of community as the site of multiple narratives, identities, and histories that, while rooted in the specific experiences of blackness, address the universal. By illuminating concerns and celebrations that abound inside the work, the art exposes the inner life of black communities—which has historically been erased and is still rarely acknowledged—in dynamic and empathetic ways." continue to blog

Paul Mpagi Sepuya in 'Young, Gifted and Black'

Paul Mpagi Sepuya's "Darkroom Mirror Study (0X5A1531)" (2017) is reproduced from Young, Gifted and Black: A New Generation of Artists, our best-selling new release this month. The artist writes: "The suggestive and overlapping meanings in the term darkroom—both the historical origin of the photographer’s craft as well as the privileged yet marginalized site of queer and colored sexuality and socialization—lie at the center of this body of work… Within my photographs, I inhabit the obscuring fabric, or as my stand-in, a reflected glimpse of the camera or tripod. My hands touch, manipulate, and adjust. I move from in front of the camera, to behind it, to reflected in the mirror. In 'Darkroom Mirror Study (0X5A1531)', the cloth, my body, and the black figure of the camera tripod throw into relief the latent bodily accumulations on the mirror’s surface. I inhabit an ambiguous place within these images. My role as photographer is one of negotiation—oscillating between the precision of the photographic apparatus and the loss of rationality within erotic excess."⁠ continue to blog
