Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Art on My Mind, bell hooks, a leading cultural critic, responds to the ongoing dialogues about producing, exhibiting, and criticizing art and aesthetics in an art world increasingly concerned with identity politics. Always concerned with the liberatory black struggle, hooks positions her writings on visual politics within the ever-present question of how art can be an empowering and revolutionary force within the black community.

Synopsis:

A critical response to dialogues about producing, exhibiting and criticizing art and aesthetics at a time when the art world is locked in an analysis of identity politics. The book addresses the question of how art can be an empowering and revolutionary force within the black community.

About the Author

bell hooks is Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College. Born Gloria Jean Watkins in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, she has chosen the lower case pen name bell hooks, based on the names of her mother and grandmother, to emphasize the importance of the substance of her writing as opposed to who she is. A writer and critic, hooks is the author of more than thirty books, many of which have focused on issues of social class, race, and gender. Among her many books are the feminist classic Ain’t I a Woman, the dialogue Breaking Bread (with Cornel West), the children’s book Happy to Be Nappy, the memoir Bone Black, and Art on My Mind: Visual Politics (The New Press). She lives in Berea, Kentucky.
