FATWTS Reviewed By THE NEW YORKER

NEW%20YORKER%20COVER.jpg

Read Vince Aletti's excellent short-form review of For All the World to See in this week's print edition of The New Yorker:

INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY
1133 Sixth Ave., at 43rd St. (212-857-0000)—“For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.” Taking his cue from Gordon Parks, the curator Maurice Berger has organized a shrewd, sophisticated show that posits the camera—and the proliferation of black images in pop culture—as a crucial “weapon” in shaping public opinion and motivating change in America before and during the civil-rights era. His evidence is rich and varied, including film clips of Paul Robeson, Amos ’n’ Andy, the March on Washington, Malcolm X, and the Supremes, as well as a wide array of printed matter, from copies of Ebony, Jet, and Sepia to a poster for “Shaft.” The murder of fourteen-year-old Emmett Till, in 1955, and the publication of pictures of his mutilated corpse, is the exhibition’s terrible turning point. In what Berger calls the movement’s “epic battle against invisibility,” every image counts. Through Sept. 12.

FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE in IDIOM Magazine

CADVC%20CIVIL%20RIGHTS%20ARCHIVE%20252.jpg

Just out from IDIOM magazine: "Strange Fruit: Civil Rights and Visual Culture
at ICP," a very intelligent and incisive review of For All the World to See.

Here's an excerpt: "There are countless exhibitions, books, films, plays, and dances, like Alvin Ailey’s seminal Revelations, that rely on image to capture the civil rights movement in the United States, especially the bloody struggles of the late fifties, sixties and seventies. The particular intelligence of this exhibition is its focus on the relationship between the image and the struggle, not only at the micro-level of its evocative emotional power, but in the broader context of the media explosion of the mid-twentieth century. To this end, 'this exhibition of 230 objects and clips from television and film examines the extent to which the rise of the modern civil rights movement paralleled the birth of television and the popularity of picture magazines and other forms of visual mass media' . . . .”

FATWTS In Today's NEW YORK TIMES

5.%20FATWTS%20PLATES%20%2B%20FIGURES%20FINAL%20IMAGES%20026.jpg

Holland Cotter on FATWTS in today's starred listing in The New York Times: "Television was best of friends to the civil rights movement in the 1960s, bringing its valiant images, week after week, into American homes. Pictorial glossies like Life and Look had done a similar service a decade earlier. How did the delivery of such images come ab...out? And why? This absorbing think piece of an exhibition gives some answers, defining visual culture in the broadest sense by interspersing videos and vintage magazines with racially loaded objects from Aunt Jemima salt shakers to Black Panther posters."

FATWTS Author Takes THE PAGE 99 TEST

300hFATWTS%20COVER.jpg

FATWTS author Maurice Berger is the latest to be invited to take The Page 99 Test: "Open the book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you."--Ford Madox Ford:

"Page 99 of For All The World To See contains no text, and just a single photograph. But what a powerful image it is: a shot of a distraught Mamie Till Bradley as she views the casket of her fourteen-year old son, Emmett Till, murdered by white supremacists in Mississippi in August 1955. The photograph brings to life the book’s abiding issue: the crucial role that visual culture played in altering prevailing ideas about race, racism, and segregation in the period of the modern civil rights movement . . . "

FATWTS Book In THE BOSTON GLOBE

300hFATWTS%20COVER.jpg

Here is a smart mini-review of FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE in the BOSTON GLOBE'S "The Find" column in its Sunday book review:

"In 1955, the photograph of Emmett Till’s mutilated body was for many African-Americans the visual equivalent of a knock-out punch. No mainstream newspaper or magazine published the photo, but the black press did. That single image played a powerful role in building the civil rights movement, we learn in Maurice Berger’s “For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights’’ (Yale University), being published April 20 to coincide with the opening of a touring exhibit co-presented by the Smithsonian. The book also looks beyond news headlines, analyzing Walt Disney’s “Song of the South,’’ Aunt Jemima, and the 1967 TV show “Julia,’’ in which racism was mainly a thing of the past . . . "

Read about For All the World to See on Artnet in a news story by Artnet editor in chief, Walter Robinson:

"Two new books tackle the subject of art and politics, a topic that is of special interest in the Shepard Fairey era. Scholar Maurice Berger’s For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights is due from Yale University Press on Apr. 20, 2010. Six years in the making, the book looks at the role played by visual images, and the rise of television and picture magazines, in the struggle for civil rights in the U.S.

The publication coincides with an eponymous exhibition that opens at the International Center of Photography, May 21-Sept. 12, 2010, and subsequently appears at the two co-organizing institutions, the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., and the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in Baltimore . . ."
