Editorial Reviews

Review

"This refreshing approach makes this book a welcome contribution to be read in conjunction with other relevant theoretical and disciplinary works." (Journal of Southeast Asian Studies, 1 February 2012)

"This book provides a compelling and richly drawn portrait of an individual artist, and contributes to a deeper understating of the cultural politics of Asia's postcolonial art world and the creative and ethnic sensibilities of its Muslim artists. It is a must-read for contemporary art historians and anthropologists alike." (Journal of Folklore Research, 19 January 2011)

"Written in straightforward language with extraordinary sensitivity, this book is addressed to undergraduate students of anthropology, religion, and art history." (Museum Anthropology Review, 2011)

 

 

Review

“Scholarship on Islam in Indonesia has long lacked a good study of contemporary Islamic art. Beautifully written and theoretically nuanced, Kenneth George’s Picturing Islam is just such book, setting a new standard for the study of Islam and the arts in Indonesia.”
Robert W. Hefner, Boston University

“This book is the future of ethnographic writing about art and a must-read for contemporary art historians and anthropologists alike. No portrait of an artist better reveals the creative processes of an artist so deeply in tune with his spirit and how a spiritual quest becomes an artistic journey.”
Nora A. Taylor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
