About this product
- DescriptionWhile blood quantum laws have been used to determine an individual's inclusion in a Native group, Eiteljorg fellowship artists have instead come to view themselves as belonging to the Art Tribe, through the universal process of art creation and collaboration. Art Quantum presents a selection of the extraordinary work created by the five artists selected for the 2009 Eiteljorg Fellowship. In his essay on the long career of Edward Poitras (Gordon First Nation), Alfred Young Man (Cree) places Poitras's installations in the context of Metis and Indian identity as well as the White art establishment in Canada. Gail Tremblay (Ondaga / Micmac) illuminates the work of Jim Demie (Ojibwa), reading his narrative paintings and intimately scaled portraits through their complex and humorous references to history, art history, and current events. Jimmie Durham (Cherokee) uses the analogy of music to explore the language of abstraction in sculptural and two-dimensional works by Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band of Choctaw / Cherokee), while the subtle and often mochromatic sculptural installations of Faye HeavyShield (Kainai-Blood) are sensitively interpreted by Lee-Ann Martin (Mohawk). The volume closes with Polly Nordstrand's (Hopi / Norwegian) reflection on the themes of longing/t belonging and placement/displacement that Wendy Red Star (Crow) documents in her photographs and appliqued dance shawls. It is the goal of the Eiteljorg Fellowship to be a starting point and a platform for exploration of Native identity and artistic expression beyond the concepts of blood quantum laws. Essays by James Nottage, Jennifer Complo McNutt, Ashley Holland (Cherokee), and Paul Chaat Smith (Comanche) help to situate the larger issue of Native identity in the contemporary art world.
