The first major monograph on Simone Leigh’s multimedia explorations of community, Black feminism and the traditions and material cultures of the African diaspora.
Over the past two decades, Simone Leigh has created artwork that situates questions of Black femme-identified subjectivity at the center of contemporary art discourse. Her sculpture, video, installation and social practice explore ideas of race, beauty and community in visual and material culture. Leigh’s art addresses a wide swath of historical periods, geographies and traditions, with specific references to materials across the African diaspora, as well as forms traditionally associated with African art and architecture. Hardcover, 372 pages.
