Grace Lee Boggs was a Chinese American philosopher, writer, and activist in Detroit with a thick FBI file and a surprising vision of what an American revolution can be. Rooted for 75 years in the labor, civil rights and Black Power movements, she challenges a new generation to throw off old assumptions, think creatively and redefine revolution for our times.
About the Artist
Stephanie H. Shih (b. 1986) is a self-taught ceramic artist whose work explores her Chinese/Taiwanese-American identity and concepts of home. Her work has been exhibited nationally and featured in NPR, the New York Times, New York Magazine, and Vice. In addition to exhibiting and selling her work, Shih also uses it to raise money for marginalized communities experiencing instability related to home, including undocumented immigrants detained by ICE and victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Each portrait is hand-cast in porcelain and finished with a beautifully crackled, high-gloss celadon glaze. The series is limited to 25 portraits, signed and numbered by the artist in gold overglaze. Due to the organic nature of the materials and firing process, each work contains its own unique variations in glaze crackle and occasional iron specks in the clay. The backside has two eyelets for picture-hanging wire (not included).
