Women, the arts and globalization

Editor: Marsha Meskimmon,‎ Dorothy C. Rowe | Reference: P3532 | ISBN: 978-0719096716 | Type: Publication

The essays in Women, the Arts and Globalization demonstrate that women in the arts are rarely positioned at the centre of the art market, and the movement of women globally (as travelers or migrants, empowered artists/scholars or exiled practitioners), rarely corresponds with the dominant models of global exchange. Rather, contemporary women's art practices provide a fascinating instance of women's eccentric experiences of the myriad effects of globalization.
