Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. African-American Studies. Performing Arts. LET'S GET IT ON: THE POLITICS OF BLACK PERFORMANCE is a "provocative examination of issues of cultural identity through an investigation of innovative performance practice"-Catherine Ugwu. Produced by ICA Live Arts, a contemporary arts institute in Boston, LET'S GET IT ON, features the art of Reza Abdoh, Elia Arce, Chila Kumari Burman, Ronald Fraser-Monro and more as well as essays by Cosco Fusco and bell hooks and others. The collection evaluates various forms of African-American performance art from the circle of the dance under slavery to carnival and its masquerade of identities, and the validity of the art form in a contemporary society. "This passionate and provocative collection brings together a rich mix of voices to reveal the dazzling creativity of live arts performance at the critical edge of contemporary cultural politics"-Kobena Mercer.
