In the celebrated, controversial essays gathered here, Oguibe exposes the disparities of the reception and treatment afforded Western and non-Western artists; the obstacles that these contradictions create for non-Western and minority artists, and the nature and peculiar concerns of contemporary non-Western art as it deals with the ramifications and residues of the colonial encounter as well as its own historical and cultural past. Oguibe's uncompromising and unapologetic criticism provides a uniquely globale vision of contemporary art and culture.
