CPInPrint and LEF(t) publications provide a platform for the diverse points of view and practices necessary to advance—and sustain—criticality, theory, and creativity within an increasingly institutional and commercial environment. Our publications neither oppose nor resist the positions that dominate our present cultural and critical environment. Instead, CPI seeks to engage current cultural and institutional practices by offering a point of view that is just a little different.

CPInPrint books, 'zines and editions are published and distributed by Cameron+Brown Publications.

Fragments of the Peculiar Institution: A Project by the Artist Dread Scott


"Fragments of the Peculiar Institution is a glimpse into my ongoing attempt to understand more about  slavery. It excerpts my effort to grapple with our present by looking at America’s past. In 1999, I made a large scale outdoor sculpture about the dragging death lynching of James Byrd in Jasper TX a year earlier. In thinking about how a Black man could be murdered in such horrific fashion by white supremacists, I had to look deeper into America’s past, specifically into slavery. That exploration began a continuing journey to look at this history, understand more how this history sets the stage for our present, and repeatedly address this in artwork. 

I’m in midst of working on Slave Rebellion Reenactment, which will reenact the 1811 German Coast uprising, the largest rebellion of enslaved people in American history. While this project is actually about freedom and emancipation, to make the work requires delving deeper into slavery. I have books about slave markets with passages underlined about how slaves were defined as real estate in Louisiana law, photographs of slave cabins and newspaper clippings of photographs of enslaved people.

They constitute an archive of notes, sketches, books, and images that reflect my efforts to understand a horror and brutality that defined the past and was as commonplace and natural then as 10% of young Black men imprisoned is to many people now."
