Within the past decade, a number of Black women artists have found acclaim through gallery support and representation, and major museum exhibitions. Victoria Valentine, writing for Culture Type, digs into the volumes dedicated to these artists, focusing on the featured artwork and the accompanying text and interviews.

"A new wave of Black female artists has been making strides in the art world, over the past several years, with major exhibitions, museum acquisitions, collector support, gallery representation, and auction records that most practitioners don’t see in their entire careers. These recent publications are the first major volumes to document the individual practices of 10 artists at the dawn of their acclaim."
