We enjoyed selling books and mingling with our authors at the 2016 annual meeting of the College Art Association in Washington, DC. It was especially exciting to celebrate our authors winning two awards for distinction.
We were thrilled that Chika Okeke-Ogulu won the Frank Jewett Mather Award for Art Criticism for his book Postcolonial Modernism: Art and Decolonization in Twentieth-Century Nigeria.
And congratulations to Krista Thompson, whose book Shine: The Visual Economy of Light in African Diasporic Aesthetic Practice won the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award. Here’s the proud author with her book in our booth.
It was great to see Susan E. Cahan, whose book Mounting Frustration: The Art Museum in the Age of Black Power is brand new.
And Kobena Mercer stopped by, too. His book Travel & See: Black Diaspora Art Practices since the 1980s will be published in April.
