New book on arts and society with endorsement by Dr. Nadezhda Savova


Dr. Nadezhda Savova highly recommends to I3C's associated organizations and networks as well as individual cultural administrators, artists, and cultural policy makers Bruce Barber's book. As noted in her endorsement, "Barber’s exploration of littoral art at the fertile margins of conventional art offers insights to some of the central concerns of anthropology and performance studies with liminality (Victor Turner), friction zones, and affect. The classical ethnographic approach to gift-giving as a social organizing tool here assumes a new dimension revealing the exchange of art as an art of exchange beyond relational aesthetics and into a variegated vision of community development."
