Surprising absolutely nobody, the National Book Critics Circle recently picked ‘Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,’ by Dr. Nicole R. Fleetwood, as one of the best books of criticism published in 2020, and on the shortlist for their Criticism prize, to be announced tonight, Thursday, March 25, at 7PM EST.
For the last six months we have been humbled and honored to be the home base bookstore for Dr. Fleetwood's visionary exhibition catalogue, which serves not only as a guide to her landmark show but also as a manifesto in imagining, practicing, and proliferating creativity and freedom despite and beyond duress. We’re with her every step of the way, all the way to abolition. Dr. Fleetwood comes into the Bookstore sometimes to sign books and check in and chat for a while. She signs every book “To art & freedom!”—the most important things in the world, which she knows and means.
Signed books are available, which you will want to have when 'Marking Time' wins the National Book Critics Circle award. Visit our Bookstore or click below to order signed copies online. With love and solidarity from Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore.
