Kerry James Marshall
Born in Birmingham, Alabama (US), lives in Chicago, Illinois (US).
Kerry James Marshall is widely regarded as one of the greatest painters of his generation. His now-substantial body of work offers his perspective on the complexity of the African-American condition, along with its persistent issues of race politics, cultural representation and social emancipation. Also addressing the history of art, Marshall strives to fill what he describes as the “lack in the image bank” with his work, whilst raising pertinent questions about how the art system sustains itself and the related issues of legitimation, power and marginalisation.
