An accomplished work of scholarship. Drawing on an authoritative command of the literature and a dexterous use of theory, Saal puts forward a clear and compelling interpretation of two major contemporary Black artists. At the same time, she develops a novel theory of contemporary Black aesthetic production called historiopoeisis. (Tavia Nyong’o, Yale University)
