Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 4 No. 4 (1981)


Published in 1981, this 64–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 Wifredo Lam, Sam Gilliam, Herman “Kofi” Bailey, Georges Liautaud, and William Pajaud. Featured in this journal are: Mildred Howard’s Last Train from Dixie and $1.25, and several announcements, including the installment of Frederick Eversley’s Parabolic Flight at the Miami National Airport, the First Rothko Chapel Awards in Houston, TX, and the formation of two groups dedicated to the study of African American and African, Oceanic, and Native American art in Atlanta and Indianapolis.  Finally, an exhibition of six young artists at Bankers Trust, curated by artist Avel de Knight, the induction of Assemblywoman Maxine Waters onto the Essence board of directors, and the opening of The Studio Museum in Harlem at its new location at 144 W 125th St are also covered in this issue. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
