Black Artists Shaping the World (Picture Book Edition): 14 stories of creativity

Pre-Order   Ships 3 October 2024


Through 14 stories, this picture book edition of the multi-award-winning Black Artists Shaping the World makes the work and lives of Black artists accessible to a younger generation.

Featuring full colour reproductions of 14 artworks and illustrations of the artists at work, this picture book is an ideal introduction to contemporary art for young children, and a fantastic tool for teachers wishing to de-colonise and diversify their classroom.

Sharna Jackson’s experience as a children’s author who has worked for over a decade in the cultural sector, both at Tate in London and at Site Gallery in Sheffield, is combined here with the curatorial expertise of Dr Zoé Whitley, Director of London’s Chisenhale Gallery and co-curator of the landmark Tate exhibition ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’. Their book features artists working in a variety of media from painting and sculpture to ceramics and installation.

The result is a refreshingly contemporary celebration of Black artists at work today that will serve as inspiration to a new generation of aspiring young artists.
