Amy Sherald

The World We Make

This publication – the first widely-available monograph on the work of Amy Sherald – accompanies the artist’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London in fall 2022.

Newly commissioned texts include an art historical analysis by Jenni Sorkin, a mediation on the aesthetics and politics of Sherald’s portraiture by Kevin Quashie, and a conversation between the artist and Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Beautifully reproducing Sherald’s recent paintings with an attention to their poignant details, this publication also illustrates a wide selection of earlier work alongside the essays and includes a series of in-the-studio photographs that provide an intimate glimpse into her process and practice.

Accompanies the exhibition of the same name, which shows at Hauser &Wirth, London from 12 Oct – 23 Dec 2022.
