Authenticity and Its Discontents. In her article, Sandy Prita Meier establishes some of the central theoretical concerns that frame this issue, particularly noting the overlaps and divergences that have shaped "African" and "Middle Eastern" modernisms within the discipline of art history. She rereads the multiple ways in which, curators, critics, and scholars have contended with questions surrounding the "modern" over the last two decades. Meier highlights the "multiple modernities" model as a strategic position for both excising the continued anxiety about "authenticity" and moving beyond the "particularism and universalism" to which art historical inquiry is all too closely wedded to.
