Art and its Global Histories

  • Written with the undergraduate in mind, this volume makes a timely intervention into the current scholarship on the art of the last hundred years
  • Negotiates the critical literature on western art and that of the 'wider world' through a close engagement with key artworks that range from the early twentieth century through to the more recent period of globalisation
  • A close engagment with key artworks and artists, including Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, Ai Weiwei, Mona Hatoum and Chantal Ackerman
  • Explains in a lucid fashion for undergraduate students what is at stake in current debates about the globalisation of the art world
  • Unlike other anthologies in the field, this volume uses its four case studies to guide the reader through a close study of the complexities of global art history
