Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 2 No. 4 (1978)


Published in 1978, this 72–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s Black Art: an International Quarterly (predecessor to The International Review of African American Art) is dedicated to contemporary art of the African diaspora. Covered in this issue are: the world of Haitian art, a view of Brazil through the eyes of BAQ International Affairs Consultant Jim Lee, and the colorful vistas of the Dominican Republic in the art of Justo Susana. The First New World Festival of the African Diaspora, a look at Africa’s wildlife from Diana Kwong’s perspective, and the sculptural forms crafted by artist James King are also featured in this journal. Finally, this issue reviews several exhibitions, including an exhibition of work by Bay Area Black artists, a new Planetarium at the South Carolina State College’s New Museum, an exhibition of tapestries from Senegal and West Africa at The African American Institute and The Museum School Gallery in Boston, and a symposium of contemporary Mexican Painting.  Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
