Abstract

In this paper, the author reflects on changes in multicultural art education theory, policy and practice over the past twenty years. Starting with an analysis of the ethnic reform orientation that was prevalent in Britain in the early 1980s, she identifies the major change in Western nation states as the acceptance of pluralism in official government policy and the impact on art education of cultural and racial politics in contemporary fine art. Whereas she understands it as a manifestation of the postmodern condition, her most significant finding about multicultural art education is that is no longer exclusively a Western preoccupation and is being interpreted quite differently elsewhere.
