      1. Catalog connected to an exhibition at Tate Liverpool, Liverpool (29 January–25 April 2010), curated by Tanya Barson, which explored Paul Gilroy’s notion of the ‘Black Atlantic’ and its relationship to modern and contemporary art. It considers how, despite the fact that intellectuals and artists from the African diaspora were excluded from the modernist narratives of the twentieth century, they were in fact central to its construction. Exhibited artists included: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Romare Bearden, Constantin Brancusi, Aaron Douglas, Ellen Gallagher, David Hammons, Palmer Hayden, Langston Hughes, Wilfredo Lam, Fernand Leger, Glenn Ligon, Chris Ofili, Pablo Picasso, and Kara Walker.
