Palestinian Art by Kamal Boullata

Book Description

This pioneering book offers an insider's analysis of the development of Palestinian art from the 19th century to the present day. Kamal Boullata's diverse selection of pre-1948 paintings through contemporary media works highlights the political concerns of Palestinian artists and their unique contributions to modern Arab culture. Work by artists who continued to live in their homeland is examined alongside that of artists of the Palestinian diaspora, including art world luminary Mona Hatoum. Particular attention is paid to the role of women artists, revealing how strategies of resistance have been employed against the dominant artistic expression.

Between Exits by Kamal Boullata Between Exits, Paperback (September 2012)

Traces the artistic trajectory of Hani Zurob, from his first painting produced in Palestine through to his latest work, developed during his exile in France. His work addresses the notion of movement, identity and displacement which are central to Palestinian every day life.

Belonging and Globalisation by Kamal Boullata Belonging and Globalisation, Paperback (January 2008)

Focusing on the concept of belonging, this collection of essays explores how contemporary art produced outside the bounds of dominant cultural circuits responds to the challenge posed by globalisation. They reveal how artists from traditional societies find in their cultural heritage the basis of a pluralistic creative expression.
