African Artists: From 1882 to Now published by PHAIDON is a retrospective of over a century of artistic practice. A treasure trove of work from artists born or based in Africa, including El Anatsui, Marlene Dumas, David Goldblatt, Lubaina Himid, William Kentridge, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu and Robin Rhode.
The book presents a rich selection of images, produced by over 300 modern and contemporary artists born or based in Africa. The book captures the continent’s booming scene, and contextualises it geographically, in relation to other art movements, and within the wider sweep of art history.
