Common Practice: Basketball & Contemporary Art is the first comprehensive illustrated publication to explore the relationship between basketball and contemporary art. The collected artworks take readers on a journey to understand the game of basketball not only as a physical activity played between a series of lines, but also as a reflection of a greater human experience.
This hardcover publication from Skira Editore covers more than a century of artwork from over two hundred leading artists—including Nina Chanel Abney, Emma Amos, Romare Bearden, Salvador Dalí, Elaine de Kooning, Keith Haring, David Hammons, Barkley Hendricks, Robert Indiana, JR, KAWS, Titus Kaphar, Jacob Lawrence, Roy Lichtenstein, Sharon Lockhart, Robert Longo, Claes Oldenburg, Paul Pfeiffer, Alex Prager, Richard Prince, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Lorna Simpson, Andy Warhol, Ai Weiwei, and Wendy White.
Edited by Carlos Rolón, Dan Peterson and John Dennis, with text from Michelle Grabner, Titus Kaphar, and RaMell Ross. Featuring over 300 full-color illustrations.
100% of the proceeds from the Special Edition and Collector's Edition, available exclusively at commonpractice.online support Project Backboard, a non-profit organization that works with artists to renovate and improve public basketball courts around the country.
