Anthropology of Art is a growing concern in England. I live and teach in
Cambridge; specifically on the Anthropology of Representation.
Goldsmiths' in London where I also teach has a 3rd yr/ (&?)postgraduate
on it too. But much better established is University College London and
the Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia, although the later
tends to museum oriented.

If you want more details let me know
