[Traveling exhibition.] Amos states: "While audiences for my work have always shown interest in my use of diverse images, increasingly the art world wants to call attention to those works that suggest I am only concerned with images of black subjectivity. In actuality my work is rooted in a visual passion for hybridity: intercultural, interracial. To counter efforts to confine and censor my artistic vision, I’ve created a body of work that critically interrogates canonical images of whiteness while simultaneously celebrating my freedom to create any image to change the subject."

DOSS, ERIKA.
Twentieth-Century American Art.
Oxford University Press, 2002.
288 pp., 151 illus. (including 91 in color). Although it includes a chapter on "Feminist art and Black art," this by no means summarizes the level of inclusion of black artists at every point throughout the text. There are many glaring omissions (John Biggers, Mildred Howard, Lois Mailou Jones, Martin Puryear, Bob Thompson, etc.) and some odd summary comments (for example, Norman Lewis's work is described as "improvisatory environments"), but it's hard to quibble with the first survey of American art to give more than token acknowledgement to the work of African American artists. Over fifty artists and 17 illustrations are included: Emma Amos, Benny Andrews, Amiri Baraka, Jean-Michel Basquiat (illus.), Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Michael Ray Charles (illus.), Barbara Chase-Riboud, Robert Colescott (illus.), Thornton Dial (illus.), Aaron Douglas, Emory Douglas, Melvin Edwards (illus.), Sam Gilliam, Coco Fusco (illus.), David Hammons (illus.), Palmer Hayden, Lonnie Holley, Cliff Joseph, Malvin Gray Johnson, Sargent Johnson (illus.), William H.

GATES, HENRY LOUIS, JR. and EVELYN BROOKS HIGGINBOTHAM, ed.
African American Lives.
Oxford University Press, 2004.
1080 pp. biographies of 611 African-Americans over more than four centuries, of which some 257 of the entries have been reprinted from American National Biography (Oxford, 1999). For far more entries on women than are found here, the reader should consult Darlene Clark Hine's Black Women in America: An Historical Encyclopedia (Carlson, 1993). The visual artists include a heavily skewed emphasis on photographers which seems to have come from copying the entries in Deborah Willis's Black Photographers: 1940-1988, without doing the same for any of the equivalent research on African American painters, sculptors, printmakers, etc. Hopefully this will be remedied in some future edition. Includes: Jesse James Aaron, Randy Abbott, Lancy O'Neal Abel, Julian Francis Abele, Billy (Fundi) Abernathy, Alonzo J. Aden, Terry Adkins, Jim Alexander, Salimah Ali, James Lattimer Allen, Jules Allen, Vance Allen, Winifred Hall Allen, Charles H. Alston, Frederick C. Alston, Emma Amos, Allie Anderson, Gordon Anderson, Ron Akili Anderson, William J. Anderson, Benny Andrews, Bert Andrews, Darius Anthony, John Arterbery, William E. Artist, Thomas E. Askew, John James Audubon (who was Haitian-born but of white French descent), Gene Austin, Calvin Bailey, George Edward Bailey, Herman Kofi Bailey, J. Edward Bailey, Malcolm Bailey, Josephine Baker, James Presley Ball, Henry Bannarn, Edward M. Bannister, Anthony Barboza, Donnamarie Barnes, Ernie Barnes, Vanessa Barnes-Hillian, Edward Barnett, Romare Bearden, Robert Blackburn, Erlena Chisholm Bland, Elmer Simms Campbell, Beauford Delaney, Aaron Douglas, William M. Farrow, Meta Warrick Fuller, Edwin A. Harleston, Palmer Hayden, William H. Johnson, Lois Mailou Jones, Jacob Lawrence, Ed Love, Alvin D.

Lists over 170 visual artists (including 18 photographers) and 22 filmmakers with brief biographies and token bibliog. for each. An erratic selection, far less complete than the St. James Guide to Black Artists, and inexplicably leaving out over 250 artists of obvious historic importance (for ex.: Edwin A. Harleston, Grafton Tyler Brown, Charles Ethan Porter, Wadsworth Jarrell, John Outterbridge, Noah Purifoy, William Majors, Camille Billops, Whitfield Lovell, Al Loving, Ed Clark, John T. Scott, Maren Hassinger, Lorraine O'Grady, Winnie Owens-Hart, Adrienne Hoard, Oliver Jackson, Frederick Eversley, Glenn Ligon, Sam Middleton, Ed Hamilton, Pat Ward Williams, etc. and omitting a generation of well-established contemporary artists who emerged during the late 70s-90s. [Note: a newly revised edition of 2012 (ten pages longer) has not rendered it a worthy reference work on this topic.] 8vo (25 com), laminated papered boards.
