by Beckwith, Naomi and Dieter Roelstraete
Chicago and London: Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago / The University of Chicago PRess, 2015. Softcover. VG. Black & color illus. wraps, French flaps, 264 pp., color & BW illus. Issued in conjunction with several 2015-2016 exhibitions that link "the vibrant legacy of the 1960s African American avant-garde in Chicago to current art and culture. It is occasioned in part by the fifieth anniversary of the founding of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), a still-flourishing organization that continues to expand the boundaries of jazz. During the civil rights era, the AACM, alongside visual artists such as members of the African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists (AfriCOBRA) embraced principles of experimentation, improvisation, and collectivity to address issues of self-determination and democracy. Artworks both contemporary and of the period, from Chicago and around the world, reveal the ongoing relevance of this interdisciplinary history. The richly illustrated catalogue features essays by leading curators and scholars, a roundtable, archival materials, a chronology and a curated playlist." (back cover).
