Black Pulp!
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  International Print Center  •  Ongoing
 

International Print Center New York (IPCNY) presents Black Pulp!, an exhibition that examines evolving perspectives of Black identity in American culture and history from 1912 to 2016 through contemporary works of art and rare historical printed media. The exhibition includes works by artists, graphic designers, and publishers in formats ranging from little known comic books to covers for historic books and magazines, to etchings, digital prints, drawings, and media-based works by some of todayís leading artists. The exhibition is organized by artists William Villalongo and Mark Thomas Gibson, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue, extensive didactics, and free public programming.

The exhibition features contemporary works by an intergenerational group of 21 artists from the Black diaspora: Derrick Adams, Laylah Ali, Firelei BŠez, Nayland Blake, Robert Colescott, Renee Cox, William Downs, Ellen Gallagher, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Lucia Hierro, Yashua Klos, Kerry James Marshall, Wangechi Mutu, Lamar Peterson, Pope.L, Kenny Rivero, Alexandria Smith, Felandus Thames, Hank Willis Thomas, Kara Walker, and Fred Wilson.

"Black Pulp!" situates these works in the context of rare historical books, comics, newspapers, and related ephemera, from Alain LeRoy Lockeís The New Negro (1925) and Wallace Thurmanís quarterly Fire!!: Devoted to the Younger Negro Artists (1926) to Jackie Ormesí comic strip Torchy in Heartbeats (1953).
