About this product
- DescriptionAre images and representations central to understanding Native Americans? How do Native artists, as producers of visual culture, respond to what art critic Lucy Lippard has called the overwhelming burdens of Indian art? In this pathbreaking study, anthropologist Nancy Marie Mithlo examines the power of stereotypes, the utility of pan-Indianism, the significance of realist ideologies, and the employment of alterity in Native American arts. Addressing the question of how visual referents communicate across cultural divides, she aims to deconstruct the common understanding of stereotypes and suggest that they may play a role in conveying otherness. By using concepts such as strategic essentialism and conventional representations, she analyzes the ways in which disparate groups employ damaged kwledges in trying to communicate their own values and those of contrasting groups, especially when other conceptual tools are unavailable.
