Long marginalized by their community and overlooked by the art market, African American abstractionists are finally coming into the spotlight. In "Black Abstraction: Not a Contradiction" ARTnews contributing editor Hilarie M. Sheets profiles contemporary artists such as Howardena Pindall,Alma Thomas, Odili Donald Odita, Jack Whitten, James Little, and Jennie C. Jones. The article contextualizes these artists within the longer narrative of modernism and abstraction, with a particular focus on how noted African American artists from earlier in the 20th century and today have made significant contributions to this genre.
