Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and the Movement for Black Lives, SNAP will be presenting a series of posts dedicated to some of the work we’ve published, as well as some performances we’ve co-sponsored, on Black artists and writers within the last few years, in an effort to promote Black art and Black art history.

No. 3: This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition “Acts of Art and Rebuttal in 1971,” curated by Sarah Watson, Director of Exhibitions and Chief Curator at Hunter College Art Galleries, and Howard Singerman, Director of Hunter College Art Galleries, at the Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery at Hunter College, October 5, 2018–November 25, 2018. The lavishly illustrated publication features works by Benny Andrews, Betty Blayton-Taylor, Vivian Browne, James Denmark, Cliff Joseph, Richard Mayhew, Dindga McCannon, Ademola Olugebefola, Haywood Bill Rivers, and Frank Wimberley, along with scholarly texts and artists’ biographies, alongside reproductions of paintings, prints, posters, and letters exhibited in the show.

“Acts of Art and Rebuttal in 1971,” serves as a tribute to the 1971 show “Rebuttal to the Whitney Museum Exhibition: Black Artists Rebuttal,” at Acts of Art Gallery in the Greenwich Village. The “Rebuttal” show was organized by the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition (BECC) in response to the Whitney’s controversial 1971 show “Contemporary Black Artists in America,” which was infamously curated by then Chief Curator, Robert Doty: a white male. “Acts of Art and Rebuttal in 1971” features 10 of the original 47 artists in the “Rebuttal” show, and some of the original works that were installed in the 1971 exhibition, with added ephemera detailing the events that led up to “Rebuttal.” Both the original show and its subsequent revival explore the history of art and protests, and the role community organizing has on the visibility of Black artists within the art world.

No. 2: Published on the occasion of the exhibition, “Karen Hampton: The Journey North,” at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art, at Hamilton College, Clinton, NY, October 3, 2015–December, 2015—this exhibition catalogue features the vibrant fiber-works of the famed textile artist Karen Hampton. Featuring in depth essays from the show’s curators, Stephen J. Goldberg and Susanna White, as well as texts by Tracy L. Adler, Director of the Wellin Museum of Art and scholar Gylbert Coker.

The Massachusetts-based artist often using new and traditional technique, including hand-stitching, photo transfer, and digital printing, creates large textile works that explore the artist’s own histories as a person of African, Caribbean, and American descent. Through this imagery, the artist narrates the struggles that accompanied her ancestors’ quest for freedom and equality. Inspired by an array of weaving traditions, from the Kuba fabric patterns from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Ghanaian Kente cloth prints, Hampton endeavors to draw a spiritual link to her ancestral past, becoming a griot and storyteller of Black heritage through her extraordinary and poignant body of work.

No. 1: Published on the occasion of the exhibition, “Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey” at
DC Moore Gallery, November 13, 2007–January 5, 2008—this exhibition catalogue stands as one our most rewarding and seminal volumes of printed matter on the preeminent Black painter and collage artist. Edited and designed by SNAP Editions in 2007, the book is 112-page full-color catalogue featuring words by the renowned scholar Robert G. O’Meally, and impressive reproductions of perhaps Bearden’s most unconventional works in his noteworthy career.

In 1977, Bearden created a series of 20 collages/paintings based on Homer’s epic poem the “Odyssey.” While most are familiar with his work chronicling Black life in New York during the Harlem Renaissance, this series is unique in that it focuses primarily on the canonical Greek text. But Bearden found that the themes and imagery laid out in Homer's opus resonated with him and the Black experience—and thus he reclaims the storied myth as a revisionist tale on the history of the African diaspora, fully transfixing the viewer with images of Black figures in luscious green and oceanic environments inspired by Caribbean and African imagery.
