This work is unique in bringing a diversity of voices to the discussion of art in the Americas. The contributors, scholars, and artists of color in North and South America from wide ranging multicultural backgrounds--Asian American, Native American, and Latin American--bring their critical perspective to discussions of art and politics, art and feminist issues, art and the environment, indigenous art, and art in the various economic systems.
The book focuses on how art, and artists of color, are influenced by the social and political issues in various Western countries, states and cities. Throughout, it conveys a sense of how art and artists must interact with society--calling for action by artists to responsibly challenge the dominant powers through art that is politically and socially relevant.
Voices of Color: Art and Society in the Americas will be used as a resource for courses in art history, art appreciation, criticism, art education, multicultural art, women's studies and peace studies.
