Product Description

by Lucy R. Lippard, Michael R. Flynn, Leslie King-Hammond, Jennifer Ellen Way, Carla Hanzal

A graduate of Cooper Union in New York, Whitfield Lovell has been widely exhibited worldwide. His work is in such museums as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Museum of American Art, and the Seattle Art Museum.

Inspired by his own background, global travels and research, and large collections of found objects and photographs of African Americans, Lovell creates tableaux and full-scale, site-specific installations, melding two-dimensional charcoal drawings with the three-dimensional objects. His works reveal African American spirituality and recall the memories and the heritage that define who African Americans are.
