Summary "This collection of essays examines and assesses the current status of painting within global contemporary art. The meaning and value of 'painting' as both a category and a set of practices is analysed by internationally renowned art critics, historians, and theorists. Also included are perceptive contributions from several contemporary artists. Concerned with the internationalisation of contemporary art as a feature of globalisation, the book sheds new light on fine art understood as a facet of a global culture and society dominated by northern and European-US power and history." -- COVER
