Becoming Art: Exploring Cross-Cultural Categories by Howard Morphy
Becoming Art: Exploring Cross-Cultural Categories by Howard Morphy (Berg Publishing / 2007)
'Thirty years ago Australian Aboriginal art was little more than a footnote to world art. Today, it is considered to be an important contemporary art movement, often promoted as being connected to a deep cultural past.
Becoming Art provides a new analysis of the shifting cultural and social contexts that surround the production of Aboriginal art. Transcending the boundaries between anthropology and art history, the book draws on arguments from both disciplines to provide a unique interdisciplinary perspective that places the artists themselves at the centre of the argument.'
