Please join Intellectual Publics for a conversation between David Joselit and Kobena Mercer on his new book, Travel and See: Black Diaspora Art Practices since the 1980s.
Over the years, Kobena Mercer’s art criticism has illuminated the aesthetic innovations of African American, Black British, and Caribbean artists. With the publication of his new book, Travel & See: Black Diaspora Art Practices since the 1980s, he reflects on the transformative impact of artists such as Isaac Julien, Renée Green, Kerry James Marshall, and Yinka Shonibare and offers some thoughts on the future prospects of the critical discourse of hybridity and transculturation that diaspora artists have brought to critical debates on identity and diversity in our global contemporary moment.
