Summary note
"A celebration of the work of women artists of color, this book explores the ways in which struggles for freedom and equality are deeply intertwined with shared feminist practices, art techniques and movements, and the notion of diaspora through the extraordinary collection of social activist and patron Eileen Harris Norton. Featuring work by Sonia Boyce, Maya Lin, Julie Mehretu, Shirin Neshat, Adrian Piper, Faith Ringgold, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and many others, All These Liberations draws out the intimate connections among artist, collector, and the social worlds that surround them. For nearly five decades, Harris Norton has championed both artists and curators of color, helping to reshape museum practice and the surrounding art market. Essays in this volume by art historians and curators address vital political, social, and personal issues, as well as topics such as spirituality, domestic life, memory and historical trauma, the body, intimacy, power dynamics, and violence toward women. The book also features an interview with Harris Norton by Thelma Golden, director and chief curator at the Studio Museum in Harlem; a foreword by artist Lorna Simpson; and a roundtable conversation among leaders in the art world discussing Harris Norton's impact on their careers and on the careers of contemporary women artists globally."
