This comprehensive monograph emphasizes the political and aesthetic importance of Odili Donald Odita’s visually astounding paintings and installations by presenting them alongside a trove of accompanying visual materials – including images from photographic archives he has collected, drawings, installations, and geometric studies.
The curatorial essays are laid out on spreads from Ebony Magazine, and while the images and captions were preserved, the original texts were erased and replaced with new ones, with Odita's work appearing on smaller shiny papers reminiscent of the detachable mail in subscription advertisements in magazines from the 1980’s and '90’s.
Published by Sternthal Books, Inc. with texts by Ugochukwa-Smooth C. Nzewi, Stamatina Gregory, and Odili Donald Odita. Edited and designed by Ian Sternthal.
