"Timed Out" is a pioneering study of modern and contemporary art in the aftermath of empire. It addresses the current ''global turn'' in the study of art by way of the transnational Caribbean, offering an in-depth account of the Atlantic world in relation to the mainstream history of art. It looks at why art of the Anglophone Caribbean and its diaspora have been placed not only "outside" but "behind" the dominant art canons, and how the politics of space and time can be used to rethink the global geography of art. This is an essential addition to the growing field of "world art studies," bringing concerns around temporality together with cross-cultural issues and debates. It shows how art and artists of the Caribbean have encountered and challenged the charges of belatedness, anachronism, provincialism, and marginalisation that are fundamental to the time-space logic of art history.
