Is Now the Time for Joyous Rage?(A Series of Open Questions, vol. 4)

 - Is Now the Time for Joyous Rage?
The fourth volume of the Wattis Institute's annual reader, on the themes found in the work of Lorraine O'Grady: Black female subjectivity, intersectional feminism, institutional critique, music, and translation.
The Wattis Institute's annual reader, A Series of Open Questions, provides an edited selection of perspectives, images, and references related to the Wattis's year-long "On our mind" research seasons. Each volume includes newly commissioned writing by members of the research season's core reading group, as well as text and visual contributions by a diverse range of other artists and writers. The title of each reader takes the form of a question and becomes, as new books are published, a gradually evolving series of open questions.
Edited by Jeanne Gerrity and Jacqueline Francis.
