Investigating Public Spaces/ The New School Collection

Renee Cox is a Jamaican American artist, photographer, lecturer, political activist and curator. Her work is considered part of the feminist art movement in the United States. Some of her best work exemplifies her Black feminist politic including the one I chose “Liberty in the South Bronx.” This photograph was part of her early to mid work. This piece fits perfectly into her career because its directly related to everything she stands for as a person and as an artist. Renee Cox is one of the most controversial African American artists working today, she has used her own body, both nude and clothed to celebrate black womanhood and criticize a society she often views as racist and sexist.
