Modern Arab Art: Formation of Arab Aesthetics by Nada M. Shabout“Groundbreaking. Shabout elucidates two critical issues that have thus far received inadequate scholarly attention—the distinction between Islamic Art and Arab Art and the relatedness of the political and artistic processes in the history of Arab modernity.”—Shiva Balaghi, coeditor of Picturing Iran: Art, Society and Revolution

Art is one way to visualize the interconnectedness of people and this book shows us how related in influence and aspirations we all are.--Linnea S. Hedrick, Miami University

With particular emphasis on production, reception, and the intersection between art and politics in Iraq and Palestine, Nada Shabout reveals the fallacy in Western fascination with Arab art as a timeless and exotic “other.”
