A collection of 33 essays by academics from various parts of the world, Globalization and Contemporary Art explores the impact globalisation has had on contemporary art and its socio-cultural spheres of production, circulation, and consumption.

‘Tackling the subject through a variety of useful analytics — forms and formations, institutions, the production of meaning, identifications, and reproductions — Globalization and Contemporary Art challenges the status of art history as the dominant discipline able to recognize and account for developments in visual art and "art worlds" since the 1980s. Collectively, this set of essays suggests how and why such a necessary re-conceptualization should take place and with what consequences.' (excerpt from back cover)
