Résumé :
Collection of essays and interviews by artist and critic Kellie Jones that highlights a life surrounded by the art. The book is framed by her ongoing dialogue with her family members, Amiri Baraka, Hettie Jones, Lisa Jones and partner Guthrie Ramsey, Jr.

Kellie Jones is Associate Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. She is the author of several books and exhibition catalogues, including Energy/Experimentation: Black Artists and Abstraction, 1964-1980; Basquiat; and (with Thelma Golden and Chrissie Iles) Lorna Simpson.

EyeMinded is an impressive collection of essays by Kellie Jones, a much sought after scholar, prolific writer, and extraordinary curator whose works I have admired for many years. She began her career in the mid-1980s, uncovering and recovering African and African American artists by organizing exhibitions, writing essays, and lecturing on some of the then lesser-known artists. I believe that she was instrumental in introducing to a larger and contemporary public the works of black artists of the African diaspora, including some of the most noted artists working today. Deborah Willis, author of Posing Beauty: African American Images from the 1890s to the Present Another compilation of diverse art works that were created against a vivid social backdrop is EyeMinded: Living and Writing Contemporary Art by Kellie Jones, with contributions from her father, poet Amiri Baraka, and music scholar Guthrie Ramsay. EyeMinded highlights the activist vision of art and culture that Kellie Jones grew up with in Manhattan's East Village, where voices and work from around the world percolated in her neighborhood. Now a critic and curator, Jones offers selections from two decades of her writing. - Publishers Weekly Kellie Jones, supported by a remarkable family of artists and intellectuals, has pr ovided a plethora of razor-sharp insights and creative testimonials to the greater arts and scholarly communities for years. As this important book makes amber clear, Jones's astute observations and in-depth analyses of African American art are invaluable resources to contemporary studies and, arguably, equivalent to the notable essays of art history's earlier, admired critics and chroniclers.--Richard J. Powell, author of Cutting a Figure: Fashioning Black Portraiture This extraordinary collection reveals Kellie Jones as a discerning architect of the multicultural art landscape of the last few decades. Informed by her keen eye and incisive intellect, Jones's definitive takes on artists, including Lorna Simpson, Martin Puryear, and David Hammons, make this book a must-read for anyone interested in American art from the 1980s forward. And then, on top of Jones's own shimmering intellectual accomplishment in these pages, EyeMinded is something else as well: a conversation between an American family of arts and letters as illustrious as the Lowells or the Jameses. This book will stand apart for that reason alone, for few American families have contributed so richly to the arts, letters, and sounds of their generations as the Joneses. Here comes Dr. Kellie Jones, 'eye-minded,' and she's bringing her people with her.--Elizabeth Alexander, Yale University
