This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book explores the transformative impact of migration and transculturation through the lens of contemporary art and the distinctive perspective it can provide on how notions of identity, belonging and community change with migration and globalisation. It seeks to establish a historical and theoretical framework by relating to the current discourses on the relations between globalisation, migration and contemporary art. The book focuses on artists as professional labour migrants and considers the impact of migration and globalisation on artists' career patterns and the conditions of being an artist. It describes the political concern with the recognition and visibility of migrants and their histories in museums, and the need for change in institutional practices, curatorial perspectives and the writing of history emerging with intensified transnational migration.
