9780199947546: Native North American Art

This lively introductory survey of indigenous North American arts from ancient times to the present explores both the shared themes and imagery found across the continent and the distinctive traditions of each region. Focusing on the richness of artwork created in the US and Canada, Native North American Art, Second Edition, discusses 3,000 years of architecture, wood and rock carvings, basketry, dance masks, clothing and more. The expanded text discusses twentieth- and twenty-first-century arts in all media including works by James Luna, Kent Monkman, Nadia Myre, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Will Wilson, and many more. Authors Berlo and Phillips incorporate new research and scholarship, examining such issues as art and ethics, gender, representation, and the colonial encounter. By bringing into one conversation the seemingly separate realms of the sacred and the secular, the political and the domestic, and the ceremonial and the commercial, Native North American Art shows how visual arts not only maintain the integrity of spiritual and social systems within Native North American societies, but have long been part of a cross-cultural experience as well.

Review:


"The Second Edition of Native North American Art updates a canonical text in the field of Native American Art History with key theoretical, methodological and artist additions. Initially instrumental in shaping the field of Native American Art History, this edition continues to influence critical interactions with critiques on modernism, materiality and indigenous authorship. Unique to this undergraduate text is the integration of the legacy of colonialism as a foundational structure in the analysis of Native American Art History. Teasing out the tensions between the histories of Native American Art, current theoretical approaches, and art dealing with critical indigenous issues, this text expertly charts a course through thousands of years of 'American' art."--Jolene Rickard, Cornell University


"The quality of the scholarship and the accessibility of the writing--for general undergraduates, as well as those who have some background in art history or Native American studies--make this text very useful for my teaching."--Bill Anthes, Pitzer College


"Native North American Art is absolutely the best text in the field. Extraordinary in both range and depth, the text's main strengths are its comprehensive coverage, its inclusion of contemporary works, and its highly accessible and engaging writing style."--Jennifer McLerran, Northern Arizona University


"This text is compact and concise, inexpensive for students, and written at a level appropriate for an introductory text."--Peri Klemm, California State University, Northridge


"Native North American Art does an excellent job of explaining the rationale behind the production of Native American art. The photos, maps, and boxed topics are great for clarifying specific themes, ideas, and processes."--Andrea Donovan, Minot State University
