The Origins of Palestinian Art

Bashir Makhoul and Gordon Hon

Liverpool University Press


269 pages


Value : Art : Politics


Makhoul and Hon present readers, students, and academics with a comprehensive survey of contemporary Palestinian art. The authors explore the development of contemporary practice, theory, and art criticism in Palestine, as well as the link between art and Palestinian national identities. The authors argue that contemporary work demonstrates political and philosophical attitudes pluralistically, confounding existing narratives of the origin and history of Palestinian art. Bashir Makhoul is a faculty member of Birmingham City University, UK. Gordon Hon is a faculty member of the University of South Hampton, UK. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
