WELLESLEY — “Globalization” is a term most commonly associated with business and economics. It applies no less to culture, where it has figured almost as long as humans have had a history. Well before there were Greeks and Romans, cultures have been grappling together like Greco-Roman wrestlers (see?).
Developments in media and technology have vastly broadened and accelerated the interweaving and overlaying of different cultures. The three artists whose work makes up “Provisional Aesthetics, Rehearsing History” at the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, at Wellesley College, are prime examples. The show runs through Jan. 11.
