Published by GRAY, McArthur Binion and Jules Allen: Me and You is an in-depth volume dedicated to the 2024 exhibition at GRAY Chicago. This one-of-a-kind volume features full-color illustrations, a dialogue between McArthur Binion and Jules Allen, and an introduction by Dr. Thulani Davis.

McArthur Binion & Jules Allen: Me and You, is a two-person exhibition featuring eleven new paintings by McArthur Binion and a survey of gelatin silver prints by New York-based photographer Jules Allen. Me and You commemorates a forty-year dialogue between the two artists, whose mutual admiration originated in the Black avant-garde of 1980s New York City. Absorbing visual, musical, and poetic influences throughout their careers, both artists pair visual clarity and formal rigor with deeply psychological and emotional content.
