Working across a range of media, including painting, sculpture and photography, Marshall has frequently engaged with questions of race and representation, often countering stereotypes in his portraits of black life. Born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1955, he has exhibited his work around the world, including a celebrated recent retrospective that travelled from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
