From the Back Cover:

Shedding fresh light on the influence of modern art beyond the West, this timely anthology provides a much-needed corrective to the Eurocentric historiography of modern art, redefining it as a global rather than purely Western phenomenon and offering a more worldly and expanded view than any existing modern art survey.

Divided in to three sections focusing on the geographic areas that have often been left out of conversations around modernity, the volume brings together a selection of major essays and historical documents addressing not only painting and sculpture but photography, film and architecture as well. Section introductions, critical essays, and documents provide the relevant contextual material, link each narrative to other art histories in the book, supply essential background information, and guide the reader through the key theoretical positions and debates.

Bringing together narratives of modern art that have been scattered in area studies of Asian, African, and Latin American art history, the volume tells a more accurate story of the radical transformation associated with modernity worldwide and opens the subject up to cross-cultural comparison. Modern Art in Africa, Asia and Latin America also addresses often-neglected topics in modern art that are especially relevant to the study of postmodernity, such as modern art in diaspora, colonial art education and institutions, and pre-histories of new media, concepts, and methods. This is a useful tool for all students and scholars of non-Western modernisms which will encourage a deeper engagement with, and understanding of, modern art as a global phenomenon.
