Celebrated multimedia artist Kori Newkirk achieved notoriety by artfully
transfiguring pedestrian objects from African-American culture - like
beads, basketballs and hair picks - into symbols through which viewers
are led to experience and interact with black beauty and life. The first
major publication of Newkirk's compelling work, this softcover
exhibition catalog features illustrations and full-color photographs that
chart Newkirk's creative development from 1997 to 2007, as well as a
detailed biography, an exhibition history, essays, and a Q+A with the
artist himself. Newkirk's work has refashioned cultural models for
himself and his viewers for more than a decade, and there's not a page
of this volume that doesn't captivate.
