BRITISH BLACK ART: DEBATES ON WESTERN ART HISTORY. Sophie Orlando. Editions Dis Voir, Paris, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 128 pp. with 21 ills. (12 col.). 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9782914563765 In English.
Publisher's description: The conditions of development of British Black Art are tied up with a social and cultural history of Europe, especially the anti-immigration policies of Margaret Thatcher and their consequences, such as the Brixton riots of the early 1980s. British Black Art Works suggests new narratives about canonical artworks of the British Black Art movement, such as Lubaina Himid's 1984 "Freedom and Change," Eddie Chambers' 1980 "Destruction of the National Front" and Sonia Boyce's 1986 "Lay Back Keep Quiet and Think of What Made Britain So Great," interrogating their critical agency from an art-historical perspective. These artworks, art historian Sophie Orlando argues, imply a critical analysis of Western art history. This volume introduces readers to an important, long-marginalized movement and recontextualizes it with groundbreaking scholarship.
