The global Africa project( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a savvy survey of the latest work by designers, craftspeople, and architects of African descent from around the world. Artists and designers of African ancestry--many in Africa but also others throughout Europe, the Americas, and the Far East--are working in a wide array of mediums: fashion, architecture, non-traditional crafts, design, fine art, and photography. Authors Lowery Stokes Sims and Leslie King-Hammond, together with six contributors, challenge presumptions of what constitutes an "African" style or aesthetic, and demonstrate the power and expressive potential of materials, textures and forms. Work by well-known artists such as Yinka Shonibare, MBE and architects including David Adjaye appear alongside those of lesser-known but equally exciting designers whose garments, carpets, baskets, ceramics, furniture, body arts, wall painting, photographs and sculpture blur the distinction between art and craft. The result is an enormously diverse display of young and established talent, and a wide-ranging survey of contemporary African art and design."--Publisher's website

Hughie Lee-Smith by Leslie King-Hammond( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painter Hughie Lee-Smith (1915-1999) sought to transform his experiences growing up as an African American during the Great Depression into meditations on the human condition. In each of Lee-Smith's enigmatic compositions, barren landscapes, lone figures, and contrasting juxtapositions elicit many questions that lead the viewer to self-reflection. Active in the art scenes of Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago, he found inspiration in the New Negro Movement-Harlem Renaissance and nurtured his artistic talents early by participating in the Works Progress Administration/Federal Art Project. While he objected to strict definitions of "black art", his personal struggles with race identity, social justice, and alienation became recurring themes in his paintings throughout his career. Includes historical family photographs, excerpts from Lee-Smith's own writings and a chronology

"The Walter O. Evans Collection of African American Art features a broad selection of outstanding works from this important private collection. Eighty color plates illustrate the aesthetic legacy created by African American artists over more than one hundred fifty years." "The introduction and scholarly essays will interest students and general readers as well as specialists and museum professionals. Four notable scholars examine the visual, social, and political contexts that influenced the artists. Dr. Evans contributes a personal statement about the joy he finds in collecting - and his desire to advance knowledge of and appreciation for the rich heritage created by American artists of African descent. The Evans Collection reveals the diversity and aesthetic genius of historical predecessors, and reaffirms the vital contributions that African Americans continue to make to the nation's culture."
