"Art and Globalization makes an important contribution to the diverse critical practices and aesthetic performances that define the global era. The editors have orchestrated a range of perspectives passionately expressed by a roster of talented voices from across the world." --Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University "This multivoiced volume successfully evokes the vastness of artistic production on a global scale. The conversations, assessments, and programmatic introductions and afterword make it crystal clear that if art is to be understood in global terms, the tasks of conceptual clarification, concept development, and methodological innovation must be taken up with intelligence, honesty, and energy, and in a way that takes thinking about art well beyond the usual parochialisms." --Mette Hjort, Chair Professor and Head, Visual Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong "In our era of biennales and international galleries, contemporary art compels both a new, wider analysis as well as a rethinking of basic forms and definitions. Presented in the form of dialogues, even debates, in transcript, followed by individual responses, Art and Globalization's distillation of collective seminar discussions intends to open, rather than to close, its topics: considerations of both the recent history of visual culture toward some guiding theory of globalization and its consequences for art production and consumption across space rather than time. Readers should be alerted that this seminar will surely engage them as participants and partisans, sharpening their own personal responses to the contemporary art world, but without offering consistency, closure, or conclusions." --Larry Silver, Farquhar Professor of Art History, University of Pennsylvania
