Mixed Blessings: Contemporary
by Lucy Lippard
Publisher's Description
Mixed Blessings is Lucy Lippard's study of multicultural art which has conventionally been excluded from galleries, museums and academies. Rich with quotes and stories, as well as with reproductions, it is more than a book about art, it is a complex meditation on the relationships of people to their cultures. Lucy Lippard, one of our most important and popular art critics and historians, shows how these Native, African, Asian, and Latin American artists explore the meanings of their history and heritage in painting, sculpture, and performance. The work she presents expresses the uncertainty of exile, the warmth of family memory, and the confusion of identity in the so-called melting pot.
