To better understand the significance of this particular historical moment in American visual arts, Collins focuses on four problems that recur when these artists confront their histories: the documentation of truth- the status of the black female body- the relationship between art and cultural contact and change- and the relationship between art and black girlhood. By examining the social and cultural histories which African-American women artists engage, Collins hopes to illuminate a dialogue between past and present image-makers.
