This highly anticipated book showcases the work and voices of an exciting selection of artists shaping the conversation about contemporary art in the United States today Since its introduction in 1932, the Whitney Biennial--the Museum's signature exhibition--has charted new developments in contemporary art. The 2019 Biennial is curated by members of the museum's curatorial staff Rujeko Hockley and Jane Panetta, well-known in the contemporary art world for their track records of working with emerging artists and producing historically minded exhibitions. The book features process images and source material from each of the Biennial participants, in addition to a commissioned text on each artist and essays by the curators on the themes of the exhibition. Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney's Alice Pratt Brown Director, notes, "The Biennial is a tradition that goes back to the institution's historical roots while providing us with a barometer of the new. Pushing beyond what is comfortable, presenting diverse approaches to artmaking, and understanding that art can never be severed from the world at large have become the hallmarks of the Biennial." Coming in the midst of dramatic shifts in the cultural, social, and political landscapes, this book will serve as an important resource on present-day trends in contemporary art in the United States.

White Negroes

In White Negroes, cultural commentator, essayist, and scholar Lauren Michele Jackson explores trends started in Black communities that have caught on and become cool, hugely popular and lucrative, but that exclude Black communities once mainstream audiences and mainstream dollars latch on. The consequences of this phenomenon can be easy to miss, as it is so ingrained in our consumer habits. Yet over and over, Black intellectual property is converted into white profit - one hashtag, hair style, music genre, and dance move at a time. This, Jackson argues, plays a role in keeping Black people from achieving economic, political, and social equity. Weaving together media scholarship and cultural critique, Jackson re-situates cultural appropriation as more than just a new buzzword. It is, she contends, simply another chapter in the long history of whiteness thriving at the expense, stolen labor and ingenuity of Black people. Further, her interrogation and exposure of the interracial antagonism resting on the other side of appropriation unravels behavior that feels normal only because it is common. Piercing, audacious, and bursting with pop-culture touchstones, White Negroes introduces a bold new voice in Jackson. Her debut is both a love letter to the creativity of Black folks and an urgent call for more thoughtful consumption by those who consider themselves "allies."

Calling Memory Into Place

How can memory be mobilized for social justice? How can images and monuments counter public forgetting? And how can inherited family and cultural traumas be channeled in productive ways? In this deeply personal work, acclaimed art historian Dora Apel examines how memorials, photographs, artworks, and autobiographical stories can be used to fuel a process of “unforgetting”—reinterpreting the past by recalling the events, people, perspectives, and feelings that get excluded from conventional histories. The ten essays in Calling Memory into Place feature explorations of the controversy over a painting of Emmett Till in the Whitney Biennial and the debates about a national lynching memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. They also include personal accounts of Apel’s return to the Polish town where her Holocaust survivor parents grew up, as well as the ways she found strength in her inherited trauma while enduring treatment for breast cancer. These essays shift between the scholarly, the personal, and the visual as different modes of knowing, and explore the intersections between racism, antisemitism, and sexism, while suggesting how awareness of historical trauma is deeply inscribed on the body. By investigating the relations among place, memory, and identity, this study shines a light on the dynamic nature of memory as it crosses geography and generations.

Whitewalling

In 2017, the Whitney Biennial included a painting by a white artist, Dana Schutz, of the lynched body of a young black child, Emmett Till. In 1979, anger brewed over a show at New York's Artists Space entitled The Nigger Drawings. In 1969, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition Harlem on My Mind did not include a single work by a black artist. In all three cases, black artists and writers and their allies organized vigorous responses using the only forum available to them: public protest. Whitewalling: Art, Race & Protest in 3 Acts reflects on these three incidents in the long and troubled history of art and race in America. It lays bare how the art world--no less than the country at large--has persistently struggled with the politics of race, and the ways this struggle has influenced how museums, curators and artists wrestle with notions of free speech and the specter of censorship. Whitewalling takes a critical and intimate look at these three "acts" in the history of the American art scene and asks: when we speak of artistic freedom and the freedom of speech, who, exactly, is free to speak? Aruna D'Souza writes about modern and contemporary art, food and culture; intersectional feminisms and other forms of politics; how museums shape our views of each other and the world; and books. Her work appears regularly in 4Columns.org, where she is a member of the editorial advisory board, as well as in publications including the Wall Street Journal, ARTnews, Garage, Bookforum, Momus and Art Practical. D'Souza is the editor of the forthcoming Making it Modern: A Linda Nochlin Reader.

An American artist born in 1934 and based in Paris since 1964, Sheila Hicks has dedicated her life to the textiles and fibres she handles, sculpts, and glorifies in works both big and small. Her unique style gives shape to an international language, understandable by each of us, which is simultaneously tactile, emotional, and straightforward.Thanks to her profound mastery of technical craftsmanship and her rare aesthetic intuition, her artistic practice finds its equilibrium at the intersection of applied arts and contemporary art, proposing an idiosyncratic chromatic and formal vocabulary.This handbook accompanies her project for the 2016 Festival d'Automne in Paris. Entitled, Apprentissages ('learning processes'), it develops as a manifold exhibition held successively in the classical architecture of the Mus�e Carnavalet, dedicated to the history of Paris, in several shop windows in different Parisian neighbourhoods, and finally in the post-modernist black cube of the Th��tre des Amandiers-Nanterre.Gathering together a record of the site-specific installations, rare archive photographs, and documents, the book is built around an extensive conversation between Sheila Hicks and Cl�ment Diri� about her life and work, her relationship with Paris, her methods of learning and sharing.Sheila Hicks' recent exhibitions include the 30th S�o Paulo Biennial (2012); the Whitney Biennial in New York (2014); the 20th Sydney Biennial, the Glasgow International Festival, and Weaving & We - 2nd Triennial of Fiber Art in Hangzhou (all 2016). She also exhibited in the Viva Arte Viva exhibition at Venice Biennale (2017).Published with the Festival d'Automne � Paris.

Marking the artist's first major publication in his 30-year-plus career, Mel Kendrick: Wood Blocks Water Drawings presents a collection of the American artist's wood block prints and water drawings. Produced over a period from the early 1990s to the present day, Kendrick's prints explore bold yet complex arrangements, all the while introducing the subtle grain of the wood, signifying the organic quality of the artist's creative process. These large-scale prints, typically measuring 3 x 2 metres in size, are largely informed by the artist's ongoing sculptural practice, in both spatial engagement and process. Kendrick's work is discussed within the book through texts that investigate the relationship that the works hold with both architectural and artistic influencers, as well as with his well established sculptural practice, through which he has a storied history of using wood, bronze, rubber, paper and cast concrete. 130 Illustrations

Do You Expect Your Art To Answer

"Do You Expect Your Art to Answer?" is a collection of ekphrastic poems that explores the world of art and our relationship to it. Born from an experience at the Whitney Biennial (New York), at which an artist, in a room she had created in the museum, challenged an abusive patron using the question raised in the title, the collection explores the idea that art and human beings are in constant conversation with each other, whether or not we are using language. Inspired by art she has seen both abroad and in the U.S., as well as works of literature and other artefacts, Peterson investigates the ways in which we are absent from or present in each other's lives.
