Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 1993. Presents "Narratives of Loss". The work of participating Asian-American and other non-Western American artist/photographers on the subject of cultural alienation: What it means to lose (or dilute or give up in part) one's original cultural identity as one inevitably and necessarily assimilates American values and mainstream culture. Displacement is not a new artistic theme or concern. But among immigrant Americans, it can (sometimes) be everything. Hence its special urgency. How an Asian-American copes with displacement is an inescapable subject of the Asian-American artist/photographer. The crucial issue is that photography itself is a Western medium that the artist happily embraces in order to draw attention to his unique predicament. The works themselves have a sensuous, even tactile, beauty that has universal significance and relevance. An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 10 black-and-white and color plates. Some of the most accomplished American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 19657
