Exploring the forces that shape our personal and cultural conceptions of love, the publication of The Progress of Love brings together the work of thirty contemporary artists who eschew traditional European romantic notions of love for less familiar manifestations. Dozens of color images show works in a range of media by Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Zoulikha Bouabdellah, Sophie Calle, Mary Ellen Carroll, Kendell Geers, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Romuald Hazoumé, Zanele Muholi, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Yinka Shonibare, MBE, and others. Edited by Kristina Van Dyke and Bisi Silva, this hardcover volume was published in conjunction with the exhibition The Progress of Love (2012-13), a transatlantic collaboration between Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis, The Menil Collection in Houston, and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria.
