The ‘Nari Ward: G.O.A.T. again’ exhibition catalogue features essays by Jess Wilcox, Socrates’ Curator & Director of Exhibitions, and LeRonn Brooks, Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at Lehman College. Featured writings consider this exhibition in relationship to the American political landscape, investigate Ward’s prolific yet under-examined body of outdoor works, and approach Ward’s practice through the lens of the history of contemporary art and culture production of the African diaspora. An interview with Ward focuses on his relationship to select signature materials – tar, copper, fire hose, tire tread, concrete, and light.
