Young Lords and Their Traces

A comprehensive survey of one of the most innovative, boundary-breaking artists working today.

Theaster Gates's work in the areas of social practice, interdisciplinary performance, archival investigation, and multi-faceted object making have made him one of the most compelling artists of the twenty-first century.

Accompanying a major mid-career retrospective at the New Museum, New York, opening in November 2022, this book covers the full range of Gates's artistic activities over the past twenty years, capturing his expansive conception of art as a social sculptor, organizer, improviser, and preservationist.
