Black artists have been making major contributions to the British art scene for decades, since at least the middle of the 20th century. Sometimes, these artists - with backgrounds in the countries of Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia - were regarded and embraced as British practitioners of note and merit. At other times, particularly during the 1970s and 1980s, they were not. In response, on occasion, black artists came together and made their own exhibitions or created their own gallery spaces. In this book, Eddie Chambers tells the story of Britain's black artists, from the 1950s onwards, including recent developments and successes.

Black Artists in British Art represents a timely and important contribution to British art history. Utilizing substantial and hitherto little-accessed bodies of archival material, Chambers avoids treating and discussing black artists as isolated practitioners, wholly separate and disconnected from their counterparts. Neither does he seek to present a rosy and varnished account of black-British artists. Instead, he explores and reflects on the very real difficulties that have faced black artists throughout the decades of their practice. Beginning with discussions of the pioneering generation of black artists such as Ronald Moody, Aubrey Williams and Frank Bowling, who came to London either side of the Second World War, Chambers candidly discusses both the problems and the progress of several generations of artists, including, contemporary artists such as Steve McQueen, Chris Ofili and Yinka Shonibare, now numbered amongst the country's most accomplished practitioners.

Of the essays written specifically for this volume, Tara Prescott's review of Joyce's life helpfully places his largely autobiographical novel in the context of his life and time, powerfully enlarging our understanding of the biographical fields the story covers. Another original essay survey the spectrum of critical evaluations, explanations and appreciations of the book, revealing a kaleidoscope of fruitful approaches to which readers now have access and to which more insights can and will be added. Republished essays explore the ethnic reach of the novel, the interwoven sexual and political dimension, and the role of faith in the novel.

"A Hunger Artist" tells the story of a performance artist whose artwork is hunger: public fasting in a cage, before gawking throngs who believe, somehow, that he is a fake. As public interest in Hunger Artists fades, the protagonist takes his talent in new and dangerous directions. A classic story by the author of "The Metamorphosis."
