This work features essays by Stanley K. Abe, Mark A. Cheetham, David Clarke, David Craven, Iftikhar Dadi, Wilson Harris, Kellie Jones, Nathaniel Mackey, Kobena Mercer, Angeline Morrison. It is edited by Kobena Mercer. "Discrepant Abstraction" is hybrid and partial, elusive and repetitive, obstinate and strange: it includes almost everything that does not neatly fit into the institutional narrative of abstract art as a monolithic quest for artistic 'purity'. Exploring cross-cultural scenarios in 20th Century art, this groundbreaking collection alters the understanding of abstract art as a signifier of modernity by revealing the multiple directions it has taken in diverse international contexts. Featuring internationally renowned scholars and curators at the critical edge of contemporary research, "Discrepant Abstraction" is the second volume in the "Annotating Art's Histories" series.
