The currents of modernism in Ethiopia are intimately connected to the broader colonial project and the international waves of modernist expression emerging from the experience of decolonisation. Modernist Art in Ethiopia, authored by Elizabeth W. Giorgis, presents a vital and under-documented history of these artistic movements, writes Jonathan Silver, and should become an important text.
