Synopsis

Analyzing ways in which black people are represented in British visual culture, this is an introductory text on work by black visual artists from the 1970s onwards. Intended for both students and scholars, it synthesizes and assesses the debates, issues, literature and theory surrounding black visual culture, primarily of US and British origin. Illustrated case studies are presented of works by a range of artists, including Isaac Julien, Keith Piper, Rasheed Areen, Robert Mapplethorpe, Roshini Kempadoo and Anish Kapoor, setting them in the social, ideological, political and economic contexts of their production. Also discussed is the cultural criticism of writers such as Stuart Hall, Paul Gilroy, Kobena Mercer and Homi Bhaba.

Gen Doy is Reader in Art History at de Montfort University and the author of "Materializing Art History" (1998).
