The following post and the addendum of recent publications are simply a few new titles that have been released since the last Booklist:
Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery which is co-authored by Deborah Willis and Barbara Krauthamer is a Temple University Press publication. According to Willis, “We wanted a range of images that showed the scope of the thinking about what freedom looked like. ...We consciously looked for black photographers; we consciously looked for images of women, whose stories have often not been included.”
"Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 2013, the book brings together more than 150 images — half never seen by the public — that depict the many ways slavery, Emancipation and freedom were represented by photography during the Civil War era and beyond." (New York Times, 12/21/12: Books)
Henry Taylor is a forthcoming title published on the occasion of Taylor's 2012 exhibition (January 29 - April 9. 2012) at MoMA PS1. Henry Taylor, a Los Angeles-based artist, applies his brush both to canvas and to unconventional materials, including suitcases, crates, cereal boxes, cigarette packs, etc. His source material includes everyone and everything around him.
Before Taylor studied art formally, he "worked for ten years as a psychiatric nurse at a state hospital. This experience sharpened his interest in, and appreciation for, individuals from all economic and social backgrounds, and encouraged a passion to create an intensely empathetic style of portraiture."
The expected release date for this publication, which is illustrated throughout, is April 2013. Text is by Laura Hoptman, Naima Keith, and there is an interview by Peter Eleey.
This catalogue is edited by Honey Luard with text by Bill Brown, Fred Moten, and Jacqueline Terrassa.
