The first widely-available monograph on Amy Sherald accompanies the artist’s exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London, marking Sherald’s first solo show in Europe.
Significant newly-commissioned texts include an art historical analysis by Jenni Sorkin, a mediation on the aesthetics and politics of Sherald’s portraiture by Kevin Quashie, and a conversation between the artist and Ta-Nehisi Coates.
While Sherald’s recent paintings are presented through a series of details, this publication also illustrates a wide selection of earlier work alongside a series of studio photographs that provide an intimate glimpse into her process and practice.
194-page catalogue with texts by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jenni Sorkin and Kevin Quashie, and studio photographs by Adam Kremer.
