Title: A Bizarre Form of Anthropology
Author: Eddie Chambers

Article accompanied by 3 photographic reproductions: Rasheed Araeen, Green Painting, 1985-86, (A Study) - Zadok Ben-David, The Lizard Hunter who Followed His Wrong Shadow, 1985 - Sokari Douglas-Camp, Ti (Ladder and Audience), 1983. Subtitle (in bold at the beginning of the article): “Lately, some English Art Galleries have been holding exhibitions of works by some of Britain’s fledgling black visual artists. The Whitechapel gallery’s From Two Worlds exhibition, held between July and September last year, featured works by some 15 black artists. Whilst acknowledging that the exhibition displayed “impressive contributions from some of our most prolific and important black artists, Bristol based artist Eddie Chambers tackles the assumptions behind its conception.”
