Featured Title: Visible Man

Visible Man provides an in-depth look at two decades worth of work from Atlanta-based artist Fahamu Pecou, examining how his work investigates the concept of black masculinity and provides new modes for the representation of black bodies. From his self-assumed persona, Fahamu Pecou is the Shit!, to work featured in DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance, this publication illustrates the trajectory of Pecou's work.
