Melvin Edwards: Lynch FragmentsMelvin Edwards: Lynch Fragments

Published by MASP.
Edited by Adriano Pedrosa, Rodrigo Moura. Text by Hamid Irbouh, Rebecca Wolff, Renata Bittencourt, Rodrigo Moura.

Ominous and angular, the acclaimed steel sculptures of Melvin Edwards convey racial violence with edgy ingenuity

This volume brings together a significant selection of works from the titular series by the New York–based sculptor Melvin Edwards (born 1937), created between 1963 and 2016, comprising more than 50 years of what is considered the artist's central body of work.

Edwards started to produce the Fragments series when he lived in Los Angeles, at a crucial time of the civil rights movement in the United States. The works directly reference the practice of lynching after the abolition of slavery. Denouncing violence against African Americans, Edwards created these steel sculptures as forms between bodies and machines that can also be interpreted as weapons, given the sense of violence and danger suggested by their blunt, angular and protruding shapes. The selection of works in this book reflects the multiplicity of thematic interests and the formal variations across the series.

Melvin Edwards: Five DecadesMelvin Edwards: Five Decades

Published by Nasher Sculpture Center.
Edited with interview by Catherine Craft. Foreword by Jeremy Strick. Text by Catherine Craft, Alex Potts, Tobias Wofford, Leigh A. Arnold.

Over the past five decades, New York-based sculptor Melvin Edwards (born 1937) has produced a remarkable body of work redefining the modernist tradition of welded sculpture. Working primarily in welded steel, Edwards is perhaps best known for his Lynch Fragments, small-scale reliefs born of the turmoil of the Civil Rights Movement. Beyond the Lynch Fragments, Edwards' oeuvre encompasses larger sculptures, installations, public projects, drawings, studies and prints.
Published on the occasion of a major retrospective originated by Nasher Sculpture Center, Melvin Edwards: Five Decades presents a richly illustrated examination of Edwards' career, featuring more than 90 works and numerous unpublished photographs from the artist's archive.
