Displacement and Difference Summary


Displacement and Difference: Contemporary Arab Visual Culture in the Diaspora by Fran Lloyd

Displacement and Difference: Contemporary Arab Visual Culture in the Diaspora brings together artists, curators, critics, and scholars from a range of geographies who engage with the multiplicity and diversity of Arab identities imaged by contemporary Arab artists in the diaspora. Centring on images produced by artists working in the diasporas of Britain, Palestine and the United States, the authors rethink the processes which constitute 'belonging' (and therefore 'unbelonging') through gender, geographies, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality; the specificities of different diasporic spaces, and the multiple ways in which shifting and intersecting points of identification are negotiated and re-presented in contemporary visual art practices Displacement and Difference: Contemporary Arab Visual Culture in the Diaspora brings together artists, curators, critics, and scholars from a range of geographies who engage with the multiplicity and diversity of Arab identities imaged by contemporary Arab artists in the diaspora.
