About this title

Synopsis:

This stunning collection of almost 300 full-color reproductions of a broad range of magnificent works of art traces the development of American Indian art from the handmade tools of the Archaic Period to contemporary creations. Includes descriptive commentary.

From Publishers Weekly:

Organized by region, this handsomely illustrated celebration of Native American arts and crafts splices an absorbing text, 290 color plates, numerous photographs and extended captions. The study demonstrates how clothes, baskets, Navajo weavings, Hopi kachina dolls, jewelry, quillwork, pottery, carvings and ceremonial objects fit into the very fabric of Native American societies. At the same time, the authors provocatively argue that American Indian art, far from being conservative and firmly anchored in the past, has been on the cutting edge of the historical present, continually reinventing its means of expression to absorb and accommodate cultural change. The album concludes with an arresting survey of 20th-century Native painting, sculpture, photography, prints and performance art, in all of which ancient images, symbols and visual metaphors take on new meanings. Penney is a curator at the Detroit Institute of Arts; Longfish, a Seneca/Tuscarora, is an artist and professor at UC-Davis.
