Post-black art is a phrase that refers to a category of contemporary African American art. It is a paradoxical genre of art where race and racism are intertwined in a way that rejects their interaction. I.e., it is art about the black experience that attempts to dispel the notion that race matters. It uses enigmatic themes wherein black can substitute for white. Some suggest the term is attributable to the 1995 book The End of Blackness by Debra Dickerson.
I can finally start to agree with this and I am sick of the work and ideas that I have been producing so far. I actually don’t particularly want to make a work about anything at all as I’d think it would be a welcome remedy from my heavy posturing.
