Summary
"Described by Art Review as 'one of the most influential people in the contemporary art world in 2018', Theaster Gates (b. 1973, Chicago) explores the complex and interweaving issues of race, territory and inequality as a socially engaged artist. Living and working in Chicago, Gates began his career studying urban planning, followed by ceramics, both of which continue to inform his work. At the heart of the book, Gates looks at the history of Malaga Island in Maine, USA. In 1912, the state governor evicted the island's ethnically diverse population with no offer of housing or support. Gates's body of work - sculpture, installation, film, music and dance - responds to this little-known story, connecting it with the wider history of African-American people. A highlight of the book are the many beautiful stills from his film, Dance of Malaga 2019, which features the choreography of acclaimed American dancer Kyle Abraham. Through a combination of essays, Theaster Gates' own words and a careful selection of illustrations, this publication underlines the artist's influence in contemporary art and interracial relationships, while its accessible approach appeals to all."-- Publisher's webpage.
