Kerry James Marshall
Painting and Other Stuff

Strongly influenced by his experiences as a young man born in Birmingham, Alabama, and growing up in Los Angeles, California, Kerry James Marshall is known for large-scale paintings, sculptures, and other objects that take African-American life and history as their subject matter. Painting and Other Stuff, published to mark his first major exhibition in Europe in 2013, presents the largest retrospective of his works in all media, from painting and sculpture to collage, photography and installation.

Painting and Other Stuff highlights Marshall’s unique, powerful take on realism and African-American history, life, and culture today.

Some book reviews
BlouinArtInfo:
“It’s worth noting the exuberant breadth of Marshall’s references and inspirations, from abstract expressionism to Japanese manga and the sort of perverse animation birthed by Monty Python. Instead of feeling like the product of attention-deficit dilettantism, it all sews up into one unified voice.”

Apollo Magazine:
“Marshall’s works do not lend themselves to simple interpretations. What they offer are ambiguous, often conflicting views on the historical position of the African-American subject, all the while exploring and critiquing the ideological underpinnings of visual culture and the history of art.”
