Over the course of almost three decades, Kerry James Marshall (born 1955) has produced a complex body of work exploring the representation of African Americans in society, culture and art history. Working across various media in portraits, interiors, nudes and landscapes, Marshall conflates actual and imagined events from African American history and culture and integrates a range of stylistic influences to address the limited historiography of black art. Produced on the occasion of the artist's first exhibition at David Zwirner in London, this volume features reproductions of 14 new paintings (the majority of which are portraits of subjects whose disassociated stares suggest the differences between "looking" and "seeing"), as well as preparatory drawings, details and new scholarship by Robert Storr. Taken all together, the range of materials included in Kerry James Marshall: Look See constitutes a vibrant portrait of Marshall's original and ever-evolving practice.
