Description: In this lively and engaging book, Lisa Gail Collins examines the work of contemporary African American women artists. Her study comes at a time when an unprecedented number of these artists -- photographers, filmmakers, painters, installation and mixed-media artists -- have garnered the attention and imagination of the art-viewing public.To better understand the significance of this particular historical moment in American visual arts, Collins focuses on four "problems" that recur when these artists confront their histories: the documentation of truth; the status of the black female body; the relationship between art and cultural contact and change; and the relationship between art and black girlhood. By examining the social and cultural histories which African American women artists engage, Collins illuminates a dialogue between past and present imagemakers.The Art of History is a major contribution to the study of American visual culture. It will be of use to both scholars and students inart history, African American studies, American studies, and women's studies.
