9780253219862: Made in Mexico: Zapotec Weavers and the Global Ethnic Art Market (Tracking Globalization)

Made in Mexico introduces us to the people, places, and ideas that create Zapotec textiles and give them meaning. From Oaxaca, where guides escort tourists to weavers' homes and then to the shops and markets where weavings are sold, to the galleries and stores of the American Southwest, where textiles are displayed and purchased as home decor or ethnic artwork, W. Warner Wood's ethnographic account crosses the border in both directions to describe how the international market for Native American art shapes weavers' design choices. Everyone involved in this enterprise draws on images of rustic authenticity and indigenous tradition connecting the Mexican nation to its pre-Hispanic past, despite the fact that Zapotec textiles are commodities through and through. Wood examines the production and consumption of Zapotec textiles through the social practices that give them value.

From the Publisher:

"Made in Mexico is an original and provocative examination of the trade in weavings and textiles. . . . A significant contribution to both the specific literature on Oaxacan weaving and a more general literature on the production and market of 'ethnic' arts and crafts." --Michael Chibnik, author of Crafting Tradition: The Making and Marketing of Oaxacan Wood Carvings

About the Author:

W. Warner Wood is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Museum Studies at Central Washington University. He is also Research Associate at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, where he was formerly a curator. He lives in Ellensburg, Washington.
