The Trouble with (the Term) Art
2006

outside objects grouped together and called "primitive art". art by appropriation/intention
"art":special category of things and practices composed of subcategories (medium, function, geographic provenance, value, etc) NOT RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE

Claire Farago
The Sacred, The Secret, and the Ethics of Historical Interpretation
2010

**to devise less ethnocentric ways to think about cultural production--many agencies--people manipulate whatever material is available in their environment to negotiate their relationship with the world.
"spanish colonial religious art always involves negotiations between natives and colonizers, b/c it was used as one of the main instruments of conversion, in a society where conversion was the Church's paramount task.

Charles Lachman
The Image Made by Chance
1992

mimesis: images representing the real world. anti-mimesis: abstract
iconography: can "read" the art (esoteric knowledge) signifier: utterance & word. signified: concept. Ink Wang-get drunk-can reach higher level & communicate with cosmos; tapping into unconscious; getting "into" the painting=harmony. Asian-intimate w/canvas-being one w/art. Haifeng (painted over rocks) challenges signifiers and that we're always trying to assign meaning to art. Xu Bing: same challenge; fictional Mandarin alphabet; signification: always looking for meaning. we don't have a pre-conceived notion so we don't know.

Nancy Parezo
Against the backdrop of Tradition
1983

Navajo Sandpaintings serve as impermanent altars where ritual actions can take place; in their proper setting, if ritual rules are followed, they are the exact pictorial representation of supernaturals. Sacred symbols & through consecration are impregnated with supernatural power, becoming the temporary resting place of holiness. Considered dangerous & can be safely used only in the proper controlled context, at the right time, under the direction of highly trained specialists. NOT "art" in western sense; NOT spontaneous creations. ALWAYS destroyed at end of ritual.

Susan Vogel
Always True to the Object, In Our Fashion
1991

"Almost nothing displayed in museums was made to be seen in them" 2 elements: curator & artist; RECONTEXTUALIZATION; 10 co-curators "the form IS the content" & "we can be insiders only in our own culture & our own time" & 'the fact that museums RECONTEXTUALIZE and interpret objects is a given, requiring no apologies"
