Black Collagists: The Book is the first publication to feature a survey of contemporary Black artists who are making collage artwork. It features both emerging and established artists making collage works from around the world.
“With this dazzling compendium, Teri Henderson has curated an indispensable survey of contemporary Black collage art. Ranging across the African diaspora and through a plethora of styles and approaches, Black Collagists makes a compelling case that collage — with its recombinatory drive, its contrapuntal imperative, and its bold irreverence, — may be the defining impulse of Black visual aesthetics.”
— Brent Hayes Edwards, author of Epistrophies: Jazz and the Literary Imagination
“This is a necessary book to enrich and correct the historical record of the collage world and broaden our view of it, allowing us to meet talented Black artists who make collage their way of exploring art and sharing their vision, ideas and realities.”
— Máximo Tuja, Collagist
“Teri Henderson has created a carefully curated introduction to Black collage art and artists. Her book is a beautiful and richly illustrated resource that is helping to redress some of the art world’s historic imbalance. A long overdue recognition of Black collage artists and hopefully one of many more to come.”
— Petra Zehner, Collagist
