This book presents an astonishing array of creative activity that constitutes the visual landscape of the young, post-apartheid nation of South Africa. As a result of this country's heterogeneous traditions, distinctions between high and low art, and between art and craft, are eroding more quickly here in South Africa than they are in the West. As a result, the word artifact is increasingly used interchangeably with art. In addition, the arts are linked to seemingly unrelated concepts such as social transformation, economic empowerment, and cultural industries. "Coexistence", organized jointly by the Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University and the Art Division of the Iziko Museums in Cape Town, is one of a stream of museum exhibitions of South African art organized since 1990 that have made South Africa a kind of poster child for the new internationalism in the art world. Although this exhibition is in no way meant to provide a comprehensive overview, it does aim to present a challenging alternative model of contemporary artistic practice in a global culture.
