Safar voyage by Fereshteh Daftari( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Safar/Voyage features a selection of recent artwork by artists from Iran, Turkey and a range of Arab countries. The text -- illustrated with more than fifty colour photographs, archival images and a map of the region -- explores themes of migration, dislocation, and changing identity and addresses the impact of war and revolution on individuals, communities and culture in this highly contested region of the world. Echoing the title, curator Fereshteh Daftari constructs a journey through the work of the eighteen artists featured in the book. Political geographer Derek Gregory questions the West's assumptions about the Middle East by asking "Middle of what? East of where?" Offering a counterpoint to Western travellers exoticizing the Middle East, historian Naghmeh Sohrabi examines the experiences of 19th century travellers from the Middle East to the West. Canadian Lebanese artist Jayce Salloum offers a visual essay that responds to the themes of voyage and dislocation. The artwork featured in Safar/Voyage includes photography, installation art, a carpet, a wall mural, painting, and sculpture
The chameleon body : photographs of contemporary fetishism by Nick Sinclair( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The highly charged characters who people the pages of The Chameleon Body have adopted an array of differing degrees of bodily metamorphosis: from minimal facial piercings, to more extreme and defiant acts, such as those of the Italian performance artist Franko B, who uses his own flesh and blood to express alienation and trauma. All of them, however, bear witness to the body's capacity for change and transformation: this is the theme of The Chameleon Body." "The photographs are framed by art historian David Alan Mellor's Introduction, which analyses the meaning and content of these images, and an essay by leading social anthropologist Anthony Shelton examining fetishism's cultural sources."--Jacket

Heaven, hell and somewhere in between : Portuguese popular art by Anthony Shelton( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Popular art expresses the passion and verve emanating from the rich imagination and the social, political and religious experiences of its creators. In Portugal, this art of the people also conveys deeply seated, idealistic views of national identity, history and character. Much Portuguese popular art focuses on three amorphous places: Heaven (the world of the saints, grace and salvation); Hell (the domain of the Devil, dystopia, annoyance and mischief); and Somewhere In Between (a country called Portugal whose denizens grapple with good and evil every day, as they have for centuries). Popular art evokes and gives form to history, contemporary events, authorized and popular religious beliefs and the push and pull between Portugal's powerful but ambiguous relations with the sea and the land. A companion piece for a major exhibition opening in May 2015, Heaven, Hell and Somewhere In Between combines an in-depth analysis of Portuguese popular art and culture with stunning photographs of 40 artworks--ceramics, masks, puppets--and another 60 supporting images, from medieval frescoes and roadside icons to graffiti and images of carnival performers and artisans at work in their studios. Complex, contemporary, theatrical, political and often controversial, this is the theatre of a nation, where official ideologies collide with homegrown art and culture and spew forth deeply felt emotions, from ecstasy and transcendence to suffering and penitence."--

Contested representations : revisiting Into the heart of Africa by Shelley Ruth Butler( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contested representations examines the controversy surrounding the Into the heart of Africa exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto in 1989-90. The exhibition was meant to travel to the US and Canada, but four major museums cancelled their contracts due to its controversial nature. With this richly textured account of the ways in which the exhibit became the site of an expansive - and explosive - discussion of representation, racism, and power, Butler asks why the exhibit failed for so many people. In the process she discusses issues of curatorial authority, institutional politics, legacies of colonialism, traditions of representing Africa, the politics of irony, and reflexive museology. The combination of race, postmodernism, colonialism, community activism, and heated debate still leaves the Into the heart of Africa exhibit in a class by itself. It continues to be cited, debated, and used as reference points by Africanists, art historians, museologists, cultural anthropologists, and historians. neueth/02.2013
