A contemporary rethinking of the ways in which anthropologists study, exhibit, and write about the aesthetic forms of other cultures. The central argument of this book is that the anthropological studies of art can benefit from recent perspectives developed in semiotics and the interdisciplinary field of cultural studies. Rather than reflecting ideas originating elsewhere in the social world, the book maintains that art contributes to the way in which the social world is structured, experienced, and reproduced.
