Published by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, Fahamu Pecou: Visible Man provides an in depth look at the artist’s work from the past two decades. On the heels of his touring exhibition DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance, organized by the Halsey Institute in collaboration with the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University, the catalogue traces how Pecou’s work investigates the concept of Black masculinity and provides new modes for the representation of Black bodies. Starting with his self-assumed persona Fahamu Pecou is the Shit! and his early NEOPOP works—in which he places himself on the covers of prestigious art and culture magazines—the catalogue shows the trajectory of his work, ending with the DO or DIE and #BLACKMATTERLIVES series.
The catalogue contains over 100 full-color images as well as scholarly essays by Amanda H. Hellman, Arturo Lindsay, Sean Meighoo, and Michael K. Wilson that critically examine Pecou’s work. Fahamu Pecou: Visible Man is an Honorable Mention recipient of the American Alliance of Museums Publications Design Competition in the Exhibition Catalogues category for 2018.
