"Mapping Modernisms' brings together scholars working around the world to address the modern arts produced by Indigenous and colonized
. Expanding the contours of modernity and its visual products, the contributors illustrate how these
engaged with ideas of Primitivism through visual forms and philosophical ideas. Although often overlooked in the literature on global modernisms,
, artworks, and art patrons moved within and across national and imperial borders, carrying, appropriating, or translating objects, images, and ideas. These itineraries made up the dense networks of modern life, contributing to the crafting of modern subjectivities and of local, transnationally-inflected modernisms. Addressing the silence on indigeneity in established narratives of modernism, the contributors decenter art history's traditional Western orientation and prompt a re-evaluation of canonical understandings of twentieth-century art history. 'Mapping Modernisms' is the first book in Modernist Exchanges, a multivolume project dedicated to rewriting the history of modernism and modernist art to include
, theorists, art forms, and movements from around the world." -- From the publisher.
