OP BLACK MALE: REPRESENTATIONS OF MASCULINITY IN CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN ART. Thelma Golden et al. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1994. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 224 pp. with 160 ills. (25 col.). 24 x 17 cm. LC 94-23212 ISBN 0874270936 In English.
Surveying images of the black male in works created by American artists and filmmakers from the 1970s to the 1990s, this catalogue documents a diverse selection of photographs, sculptures, paintings, drawings and films by numerous African American artists (among them Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lorna Simpson, Adrian Piper, Gordon Parks, Spike Lee, David Hammons, Carrie Mae Weems and Fred Wilson) and by such figures as Leon Golub, Robert Mapplethorpe and Jeff Koons, many of the works exploring the negative stereotypes of black masculinity embedded in contemporary popular culture. A lengthy overview of the exhibition prefaces twelve essays discussing topics that include the traditional depiction of the black male as either menace or victim, the portrayal of black gay men in films and the vilification of rap musicians in the mass media.
