Derek Conrad Murray

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter undertakes a critical survey of a number of the most prominent African American visual artists whose satirical work engages with the “Post-Black” designation coined by Thelma Golden and Glenn Ligon for the 2001 Freestyle show at the Studio Museum in Harlem. This chapter argues that “Post-Black” artists represent a generational shift in subject matter, style, and rhetoric, separating these artists from those of the Civil Rights period. Key to this generational shift are the frustrations that accompany notions of identity and belongingness that contemporary artists find to be stifling and exclusionary.
