In the first examination of Diago’s creative work during his entire career, Alejandro de la Fuente provides parallel English- and Spanish-language text, illustrated throughout. The book traces Diago’s singular efforts to construct new pasts—the pasts required to explain the racial tensions of contemporary Cuba and the pasts of this Afro-Cuban present.
This catalogue documents the exhibition Art of Jazz, a collaborative installation at the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art with one section (FORM) installed at the Harvard Art Museums. The book explores the intersection of the visual arts and jazz music, and presents a visual feast of full color plates of artworks, preceded by a series of essays.
Curators David Adjaye and Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt share their interpretative insights on a distinctive selection of objects from Jean Pigozzi’s superb Contemporary African Art Collection (CAAC). The catalog includes introductory texts by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Jean Pigozzi and is illustrated with full-color images of the exhibition art from twenty-one artists of the African continent. It also features essays from Cooper Gallery Director Vera Grant, Newark Museum Curator Christa Clarke, and Studio Museum in Harlem Director Thelma Golden.
