Out of Easy Reach, Paperback / softback Book

Out of Easy Reach Paperback / softback


Countering conventional accounts of art history, which have often overlooked the artistic contributions of women of color, the exhibition "Out of Easy Reach" presents the work of twenty-four US-based, female-identifying artists from the black and Latina diasporas.

The exhibition proposes myriad ways that artists are employing abstraction as a tool to explore histories both personal and universal, with focuses on mapping, migration, archives, landscape, vernacular culture, language, and the body.

This catalog--which accompanies an exhibition opening in April 2018 at the DePaul Art Museum, Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Stony Island Arts Bank--includes full-color plates of the works on view; commissioned essays by exhibition curator Allison Glenn, and Cameron Shaw, executive director and founding editor of Pelican Bomb; and short-form contributions about each artist featured in the exhibition written by invited scholars, curators, writers, and artists.
