This is the first in a landmark series of three titles that assembles, documents, interprets, and explores the rich diversity of craft, art, and design being produced today by contemporary Native American artists.
This first volume, which focuses on Native American arts in the Southwest, includes works in a variety of media by approximately ninety artists. This series offers an opportunity to appreciate the work of pioneers defying traditional Native American cultural stereotypes and of younger artists exploring new ground.
Magnificent images of each artist's work (many never before published) are accompanied by artists' statements, biographies, and commentaries. A bibliography of Native American arts today has also been included.
This landmark exhibition is captured in this 224 page catalogue featuring 253 color photographs of every work in the show. Chief Curator David Revere McFadden and Native American art specialist Ellen Napiura Taubman comment on the rich diversity of art, craft, and design being produced by contemporary Native American artists. This book documents the first of three exhibitions organized by the Museum of Arts and Design, to present "Native American art in all of its manifestations". Essays by scholars of Native art and artist statements also make this book indispensable to students, collectors, and the general reader.
