Covering nearly half a century and including the works of nearly fifty artists in a wide variety of media, this book looks beyond ideas of musical category to identify the Blues as a visual and cultural idiom that has informed multiple generations of artists - from Romare Bearden and William Eggleston to David Hammons and the television series "The Wire." Generously illustrated with paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, installation, and video stills, and containing a wide range of critical writing, poetry, and fiction, the catalogue explores topics central to the Blues - from articulations of daily life, modes of abstraction and repetition, and self-performance to ecstatic and cathartic expression and metaphors of memory and the archive. Both scholarly and unique, this reimagining of all things "Blues" will draw audiences from across cultural and racial boundaries as it celebrates a uniquely American idiom that has made its mark on nearly every contemporary artistic medium.
