John and Dominique de Menil were vocal champions of human rights worldwide, focusing their actions on civil rights in particular. In 1960 they launched the ambitious scholarly research project The Image of the Black in Western Art, directed by art historian Ladislas Bugner. Spanning nearly 5,000 years and documenting virtually all forms of media, the unprecedented research project was devoted to the systematic investigation of how people of African descent have been perceived and represented in art. For the first thirty years of its existence, the project focused on the production of a prize-winning, four-volume series of generously illustrated books, The Image of the Black in Western Art. Now, fifty years later, Dominique de Menil's mission has been re-invigorated through the collaboration of Harvard University Press and the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research to present new editions of the coveted five original books, as well as an additional five volumes.

This lavishly illustrated career survey of the work of Ashley Bickerton provides unprecedented insight into the artist’s life and art. The artist’s move, in 1993, to the surfer’s paradise of Bali, Indonesia, occasioned the development of a richly hued aesthetic that has found expression in diverse paintings, sculptures, and photographs. Combining the fantastically exotic with the troublingly nightmarish, Bickerton’s evocative work continues to evolve. Throughout this eclectic monograph, the artist’s own commentary is interwoven with text from additional contributors, including essays by fellow artist Jake Chapman, novelist Nick McDonell, art historian Abigail Solomon-Godeau, curator Dominic Molon, and the artist’s father, the noted linguist-anthropologist Derek Bickerton.

Vera Lehndorff Known since the 60's, when she began her career as a model, she entered the public domain using the pseudonym "Veruschka" a fictional character representing pure perfection. As such she became one of the most sought-after and heavily publicized models in international fashion. Prior to her crossing over to the art world with a renowned series of camouflage body-paintings, many prominent photographers worked with her, including Newton. A decade ago, Vera Lehndorff performed and transmitted her role as the cliche model in collaboration with Andreas Hubertus Ilse as documentary photographer. Veruschka Self-Portraits were created to represent this fictional character posing for the camera as a series of off-beat personalities. The exhibited vintage photographs show different aspects of Veruschka in eccentric, custom-made costumes. Here she can be seen exploring the boundaries of personality, whether as a trans-gendered male intellectual, a streetwise rapper, a Hollywood superstar, or her own glamorous alter-ego, Veruschka.
