Cover ArtOur Selves: Photographs by Women Artists by Roxana Marcoci
Call Number: TR 681 .W6 O97 2022
 
This publication focuses on an exceptional gift of 108 photographs by women artists from the collection of Helen Kornblum, distinguished member of MoMA's Committee on Photography. The publication highlights this significant acquisition, which contributes to the Museum's continuous effort to research and rethink twentieth century art history narratives by amplifying the presence of women artists. The book is structured around thematic groupings, arranged chronologically, and each prefaced by a short text. Special attention is devoted to topics such as: pictorialist portraiture, surrealist explorations, portraits of artists, the social documentary, advertising, photography and language, photojournalism, gender and the media, still life and domesticity, performance for the camera, and to the camera as a means of personal artistic expression. From modernists such as Claude Cahun and Yva to contemporary photographer Catherine Opie, many of the works in this volume elicit conversations about queer subjectivity. Themes related to colonial history and indigeneity are addressed in photographic projects by both Native artists such as Cara Romero and Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie, and non-Native practitioners including Graciela Iturbide, Sharon Lockhart, Meridel Rubenstein, Tatiana Parcero, and Tracey Moffatt. Lorna Simpson and Carrie Mae Weems offer uniquely feminist African-diasporic viewpoints on the relationship of race and gender. Our Selves presents a series of new perspectives that rise to our current moment, addressing the urgent need for more intersectional conversations in the arts.

Cover ArtArt on the Frontline: Mandate for a People's Culture by Tschabalala Self, Angela Y. Davis
Call Number: N 6537 .S46 A4 2021
 
In 1985, scholar and activist Angela Y. Davis asked, 'How do we collectively acknowledge our popular cultural legacy and communicate it to the masses of people, most of whom have been denied access to the social spaces reserved for arts and culture?' Looking to the cultural forms born of Afro-American struggles, Davis insists that we attempt to understand, reclaim and glean insight from these in preparing a political offensive against the racial oppression endemic to capitalism. Working from a site of racial uprising some 35 years later, artist Tschabalala Self responds to Davis's words with a new series of characteristically vibrant, challenging and provocative works on paper. Her series of three individual subjects emerge collectively as something greater than their parts, suggesting in the ebbs and flows in joy and disdain a kind of shared social consciousness. --back cover
