Manifest, published by California Institute of Integral Studies
116 pages, 40 four-color, 9 x 12", 2015
The images in Manifest reflect the unique and overlapping histories of slavery, abolitionism and spiritualism. These intimate yet monumental images spatially blur the objects, defying easy read or interpretation, veiling and unveiling the residues of slavery and segregation.
"In Manifest, Wendel White make historical objects intimate and singular. These objects - oxidized spoon, an open diary, a slave bill of sale, and perhaps above all, a lock of Frederick Douglass's hair -- are all embodied, had once touched flesh, been manipulated by human hands, had lived in the world before they were packed up into the archive." - Leigh Raiford
