In this book, Chambers tells the story of Britain's black artists, from the 1950s on, including recent developments and successes. Utilizing substantial and little-accessed bodies of archival material, Chambers avoids treating and discussing black artists as isolated practitioners, wholly separate and disconnected from their counterparts.

Review:

'Eddie Chambers' Black Artists in British Art is a breathtaking tour de force. Brilliantly conceptualised, beautifully written and inspirationally theorised, this volume's seminal contribution to art history is unparalleled. Spectacularly well researched and stunningly original, it is an exemplary scholarly feat, essential for researchers, students and general audiences alike, and one which offers yet further confi rmation of Chambers' reputation as the leading international scholar of his generation.' Celeste-Marie Bernier PROFESSOR OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES, UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM; 'If you told most art-world types you were interested in black British art, they might point you to Yinka Shonibare, Chris Ofili, Steve McQueen, and-maybe-a couple of others. That's it. But if you really want to know about the history and context of this vital part of contemporary practice in the UK, Black Artists in British Art: A History Since the 1950s (I. B. Tauris) by Eddie Chambers is the book you need. Chambers writes an authoritative history of black British art, but also explores its fraught relationship with white, establishment institutions... a refreshing mix of the art historian's meticulous archival work, the thrilling, blow-by-blow account of the eyewitness, and the impassioned, candid argumentation of the seasoned critic.' - Chika Okeke-Agulu, ArtForum

Black artists have been making major contributions to the British art scene for decades, since at least the mid-twentieth century.

Black Artists in British Art makes a major contribution to British art history. Beginning with discussions of the pioneering generation of artists such as Ronald Moody, Aubrey Williams and Frank Bowling, Chambers candidly discusses the problems and progression of several generations, including contemporary artists such as Steve McQueen, Chris Ofili and Yinka Shonibare.
