Anthropology, art, and aesthetics by Jeremy Coote( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays on anthropological approaches to art and aesthetics is the first in its field to be published for some time. In recent years a number of new galleries of non-Western art have been opened, many exhibitions of non-Western art held, and new courses in the anthropology of art established. This collection is both part of and complements these developments, contributing to the general resurgence of interest in what has been until recently a comparatively neglected field of academic study and intellectual debate. Unlike many previous collections, the focus of this volume is resolutely anthropological. The contributors draw on contemporary anthropological theory as well as on analyses of classic anthropological topics such as myth, ritual, and exchange, to deepen our understanding of particular aesthetic traditions in their socio-cultural and historical contexts. In addition, the cross-cultural applicability of the very concepts 'art' and 'aesthetics' is assessed. Each essay illustrates a specific approach and develops a particular argument. Many present new ethnography based on recent field research among Australian Aborigines, in New Guinea, Indonesia, Mexico, and elsewhere. Others example, the Trobriand Islanders of Melanesia draw on classic anthropological accounts of, for and the Nuer of the Southern Sudan, putting this material to new uses. Sir Raymond Firth's introductory overview of the history of the anthropological study of art makes this volume particularly useful for the non-specialist interested in learning what anthropology has to contribute to our understanding of art and aesthetics in general. With its wide geographical and cultural coverage and plentiful illustrations, many of which are in colour, Anthropology, Art, and Aesthetics will be a valuable resource for all serious students of the subject

Safar voyage by Fereshteh Daftari( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 132 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 )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 113 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 )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 20 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."--
