The catalog Four Generations: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection of Abstract Art (2016), edited by Courtney J. Martin, shows that a history of blacks in American art can be told through means other than the representational or narrative. (New York Review of Books)
By bringing together the disparate efforts of an impressive range of artists, curators, and scholars, this compendium goes a long way toward…upsetting the the reductive narratives and false dichotomies that so often accompany work by black artists. (Michael Miller Bookforum)
...It would not be a stretch to call the Joyner-Giuffrida collection an uprising in its own right. (Rob Haskell W Magazine)
When art collectors publish a book on their treasures, they often include a glamour shot of themselves surrounded by myriad works. But in “Four Generations: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection of Abstract Art,” edited by Courtney J. Martin and published last month by Gregory R. Miller, there is no picture of Ms. Joyner anywhere. Instead, there are academic essays by curators and writers, with only a short “question and answer” segment with Ms. Joyner and her husband, Alfred J. Giuffrida. (Ted Loos The New York Times)
It is a chance to contemplate a wider, more complex and exciting narrative: how African-American artists show a different version of America, and how some, like Mr Gilliam, have changed the language of art itself. (The Economist)
