Amy Sherald: The World We Make
October 2022

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.

Designed for Hauser & Wirth; Hardcover, 9.85 × 11.8"; Typefaces: LL Bradford (Laurenz Brunner, Lineto); Papers: Wibalin Natural, Magno Volume, Pergraphica Classic Smooth, Munken Polar Rough
