Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 3 No. 3 (1979)


Published in 1979, this 70–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 the art of Houston Conwill and the films of Ousmane Sembene. The significance of Black visual artists to their community, the benefit of funding the arts, and the use of insects in the visual arts are discussed in this issue. Finally, a review of Contextures by Linda Goode–Bryant and Marcy S. Phillips (New York: Just Above Midtown, Inc., 1978) by Floyd W. Coleman, Ph.D., and news from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Northeastern University’s Master Artist–in–Residence Program, the Ethnic Heritage Center at Wayne State University, and the New Orleans Museum of Art are featured in this journal. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
