Primitive Art in Civilized Places Summary


What is so "primitive" about primitive art? And how do we dare to use our standards to judge it? Drawing on an intriguing mixture of sources--including fashion ads and films, her own anthropological research and even comic strips like Doonesbury--Price explores the cultural arrogance implicit in Westerners' appropriation of non-Western art. "A witty, but scholarly, indictment of the whole primitive art business."--Peter Plagens, Newsweek "Prices unfolds a fascinating history of the many 20th-century expeditions in search of exotic culture."--Michael W. Perri, Utne Reader
