Alternate ISBN 978-2-930368-68-9 is also imprinted. Publisher's description: Photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier (born 1982) grew up in Braddock, PA, a borough in the American Rust Belt ravaged by the steel-industry crisis that hit the US during the Reagan administration. In this former bastion of the steel industry, the artist was raised in her Afro-American family, whose story she told in The Notion of Family. Her 2016 residency at Grand-Hornu allowed her to pursue her work on post-industrial society in Belgium, turning her camera to the Borinage, a mining region whose intense activity in the 19th century was diminished by a series of crises that led to the closure of the last mine in 1976. Testimonies gathered by Frazier from the former miners and their families have resulted in And from the Coaltips a Tree Will Rise, an extensive collection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes.

Nick Cave: Until. Denise Markonish et al. MASS MoCA/Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, 2017. Published by DelMonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York. 200 pp. 200 col. ills. 29 x 23 cm. LC 2016-50801 ISBN 9783791356051 In English.
Publisher's description: This generously illustrated book takes readers inside Nick Cave's newest work: an enormous, elaborate journey through the workings of the artistic mind. Nick Cave's 'Soundsuits; -- exuberant, brightly colored wearable sculptures adorned with buttons, hair, toys and other found objects -- have made him one of the best-known contemporary artists. This book documents his most extensive work to date, turning his art inside out. Until fills MASS MoCA's football field- sized gallery, without a single Soundsuit to be found. Instead Cave takes us inside the belly of one of his iconic sculptures with an immersive environment populated by a dazzling array of found objects, echoing some of Cave's and America's most confounding dilemmas: gun violence, racial inequality, injustice within our cities' police departments, and death. An installation diary and numerous images reveal how an idea becomes reality. Until also incorporates special appearances by dancers, singer/ songwriters, and poets, as well as community forums, and opportunities for public debate and engagement.
