Summary
"Resisting orthodox interpretative discourse, this collection of writings by Jean Fisher traces the author's journey through the political and intellectual turbulence of the past twenty years and its impact on both artistic practice and the writing of art. Through her close study of Anglo/Irish and US/Native American colonial and contemporary relations, Fisher explores the efficacity of artistic practice in the construction of political and subjective agency. Each essay in Part One maps a possible terrain for approaching the work of a single artist - among them, James Coleman, Jimmie Durham, Susan Hiller, Gabriel Orozco and Adrian Piper - while the texts in Part Two reflect upon artistic practice in relation to questions of subjectivity, postcoloniality and multiculturalism." "The author's interdisciplinary approach to writing provides a richly varied insight into the relationship between the practices of visual art and theory and has been highly influential to a generation of international scholars, artists and curators."--BOOK JACKET
