Michael Ray Charles Exhibition Catalogue

Michael Ray Charles Exhibition Catalogue

Rigsby Design, Houston, Texas, 1996

Description

This commemorative package introduces the work of Michael Ray Charles, whose provocative, highly charged paintings explore racist stereotypes and pop-culture black symbolism. The paintings are reproduced in a poster-size brochure; a smaller “textbook” illuminates the work with essays by filmmaker Spike Lee and historian Marilyn Kern-Foxworth. Perforated puzzle pieces, voyeuristic die-cuts, and a sealed cover that has to be cut or torn makes interaction with the work inescapable.
