Product Details

Praise

English’s discursive and dialectical way of comprehending the practices of black artists emancipates both ‘black art’ and ‘black artists’ and provides a necessary road for creative ways to ‘do’ African American art history.—Steven Nelson , Art Bulletin

Equally thorough and successful in his presentation of new readings to familiar works of art, English reminds the reader with each carefully considered example that ‘to take this art seriously is to traffic in the unfamiliar.’

Jennifer Jordan, Camerawork

How to See is a timely and relevant book, opening a debate that is long overdue.
