Complex entanglements: art, globalisation and cultural difference
Based on a groundbreaking international conference held in Sydney, Australia, under the auspices of Artspace, this anthology explores the legacy and the future of multicultural discourses for the arts. Debates on art, culture, and theory are situated within the context of globalization. The issues arising from new hybrid and complex forms of cultural identity are examined with reference to both contemporary art practice and historical accounts of national identity. Contributors include Ricardo Dominguez, senior editor of "The Thing.Net, Coco Fusco, an interdisciplinary artist teaching at Columbia University; Sneja Gunew, professor of English and women's studies at the University of British Columbia; and Fazal Rizvi, a professor of education at the University of Illinois.
