The first illustrated survey of significant contemporary African American art
Battleground is the first illustrated history of contemporary African American art. The volume offers an in-depth examination of twenty-five Black artists, discussing their artworks, practices, and philosophies, as expressed in their own words. Celeste-Marie Bernier has done extensive archival work in sources that have not been studied before, and her research provides a foundation for an intellectual and cultural history of contemporary African American artists and art movements from 1990 to the present. The wealth of quoted material—published interviews, artist statements, and autobiographical essays—should inform and inspire additional research in the years to come. Hardcover, 248 pages.
