Global Art: Art Essentials series (Paperback)

Global Art: Art Essentials series By Jessica Lack Cover Image


An essential guide to the multifaceted and increasingly connected global art community from 1900 to today.

Global Art introduces some of the most significant art movements of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries that have challenged the status quo. Featuring fifty artistic developments from every continent, this volume covers movements born of decolonization, marginalization, and conflict. Ranging from the Saqqakhaneh artists of Iran to the Stridentists of Mexico, Experimental Workshop of Japan to America’s AfriCOBRA, it chronicles groups that have empowered and given voice to their members.

Packed with bold and illuminating illustrations, the book demonstrates the distinct but connected roles of global movements in creating cross-cultural dialogues in today’s art world. Journalist Jessica Lack provides historical context for each art movement, key cultural events, and interconnections, bringing to life the protagonists in each movement’s evolution.
