Imaging African Art: Documentation and Transformation

Daniell Cornell and Cheryl Finley

This publication makes connections between Walker Evans’s and Charles Sheeler’s photographs of African art and work by 12 American artists, including Romare Bearden, Barry Le Va, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems, which together demonstrate, in coauthor Cheryl Finley’s words, that “[t]he tradition of remembrance is an artistic practice of survival.” The book examines the ways Americans, both black and white, have responded to the African diaspora.
