Third Space: Shifting Conversations About Contemporary Art

Wassan Al-Khudhairi, Ivy G. Wilson, H.G. Master, Lindsey Reynolds

Third Space: Shifting Conversations About Contemporary Art explores connections and shared cultural experiences between the American South and the Global South. The title picks up Homi Bhabha’s term “third space,” a space that “challenges our sense of the historical identity of culture as a homogenizing, unifying force, authenticated by the originary Past, kept alive in the national tradition of the People.” This volume seeks to chart one of those third spaces. Connections are explored through a series of themes: migration, diaspora and exile; gaze, agency and representation; spirit, nature and landscape; and tradition, history and memory. Third Space features the work of more than 90 international artists, including Ebony G. Patterson, Thornton Dial, Kerry James Marshall and William Christenberry.
