DOUBLE DESIRE: TRANSCULTURATION AND INDIGENOUS CONTEMPORARY ART. Ed. by Ian McLean. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2014. 400 pp. with 73 ills. (6 col.). 22 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781443867436 In English.
Publisher's description: Double Desire challenges the tendency of critics to perpetuate an aesthetic apartheid between Indigenous and Western art. The double desire explored in this book is that of the divided but also amplified attractions that occur between cultural traditions in places where both indigenous and colonial legacies are strong. The result, it is argued, produces imaginative transcultural practices that resist the assimilation or acculturation of Indigenous perspectives into the dominant Western mode and open contemporary art beyond its conventional limited Western trajectory. The essays, by fourteen experts in the field, discuss Indigenous contemporary art practices and their artworld reception in different locales in Australia, America and Africa, from metropolitan centres to regional and remote communities. Postcolonial theories of transculturation, globalism and relational art practices that galvanize current theories of contemporary art provide the main frames for this discussion.
