ART PAPERS 43.03 - Winter 2019/2020

Regular price $10.00 Sale

This issue of ART PAPERS, with the theme of Global(isms) speaks to—and through—artists who work cross-culturally, without countries, within and against the constructs of nationalism, isolationism, globalism, and other isms. Within the placelessness of contemporary art, how does the meaning of an artwork fare as it crosses borders, becomes translated, displaced: a migrant object? What is lost, and can that loss carry a meaning of its own? Voices in this issue speak to migration, diaspora, and hybridity, as well as the potential for and limitations of art as translator of cultural meaning. In these negotiations artists can mine the resources of cultural symbolism—visual cues, myths, and histories—for their productive potential and signification, while also turning them to expose their flaws, gaps, and how they are often articulated through histories of colonization, erasure, and violence.
