Inhaltsangabe: One of the most significant developments in the art world of the 1980s and 1990s has been the rise to prominence of minority cultures. In this provocative volume, an art historian looks at how the different minority groups came to prominence, and how they revolutionized the kinds of art currently featured in museums and galleries. 115 illustrations, including 100 in full color.
From Booklist: Historians have been playing catch-up over the past decade in an attempt to recognize and document the heretofore ignored yet essential roles of women and minorities. This worthwhile effort has brought us both the blessing of a more accurate and enlightening perspective and the curse of superficial forms of political correctness. Prolific and candid art historian Lucie-Smith is not afraid to elucidate the many subtle ways this muddle of good intentions with genuine scholarship and aesthetic appreciation can skew our perceptions of the art of African Americans, Chicanos, feminist women, gay men, Australian Aboriginal and Maori artists, and modern African and Asian artists. For one thing, there is great artistic diversity within each of these groups, since not every member of a racial, ethnic, or sexual group creates overtly political or group-oriented art. Lucie-Smith discusses a number of artists from each group in terms of how their work relates to their minority status, their uniquely personal viewpoint, and the aesthetics and expectations of the majority. Of particular interest is the section on "minority sexuality" in which Lucie-Smith focuses on the art of gay men and the use of sexual imagery as a "weapon of the avant garde." Donna Seaman
