This item may take up to two weeks to ship.

This book surveys the work of a new generation of Black artists, and also features the voices of a diverse group of curators who are on the cutting edge of contemporary art. As mission-driven collectors, Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi have championed emerging artists of African descent through museum loans and institutional support. But there has never been an opportunity to consider their acclaimed collection as a whole until now.

Edited by writer Antwaun Sargent (author of The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art and Fashion),Young, Gifted and Black draws from this collection to shed new light on works by contemporary artists of African descent and takes stock of how these new voices are impacting the way we think about identity, politics, and art history itself.
