Monique Kerman

Contemporary British Artists of African Descent and the Unburdening of a Generation

€ 126.45


This book explores the notable roles that contemporary British artists of African descent have played in the multicultural context of postwar Britain. In four key case studies- Magdalene Odundo, Veronica Ryan, Mary Evans, and Maria Amidu-Monique Kerman charts their impact through analysis of works, activities, and exhibitions. The author elucidates each of the artists` creative response to their unique experience and examines how their work engages with issues of history, identity, diaspora, and the distillation of diverse cultural sources. The study also includes a comparative discussion of art broadly defined as `black British,` in order to question assumptions concerning racial and ethnic identities that the artists often negotiate through their works-particularly the expectation or `burden` of representing minority or marginalized communities. Readers are thus challenged to unburden the artists herein and celebrate their work on its own terms.
