Mirror Reflecting Darkly: The Rita Keegan Archive
Goldsmiths Press, 2021
From the Bronx to Soho to Brixton, Mirror Reflecting Darkly is an exploration of the artist Rita Keegan's archive collection. Part biography and part critical history, it reproduces a cross-section of Keegan's archive, mapping an artistic practice that spans her long involvement in the British Black Arts Movement, her years as a fixture of Soho clubland, as well as the intimate documentary traces of her everyday life as a working Black female artist. The book was produced as part of The Rita Keegan Archive Project.
