A clothbound compendium of Theaster Gates’s interdisciplinary exploration of artistic and religious representations of the Black Madonnas. For his Kuntsmuseum Basel exhibition, Chicago-based multiartist Theaster Gates (born 1973) interrogates the mainstream art world’s Eurocentrism through a multi-venue, multimedia exploration of the figure of the Black Madonna.This publication serves as an accompaniment to the exhibition and delves into Gates’ methods, featuring pictorial reportage and new essays that highlight a number of complexities related to spirituality, Black identity, and artistic and political agency.
