Until about two decades ago, Art History was mainly Western Art history. The essays deal directly with early scholars' and collectors' cultural barriers to understanding their subjects. The book provides examples of how to question the idealogical bases of what we often accept as the truth regarding the work. I've found it to be immensely useful in a course that surveys the field; students develop a better appreciation for the work by studying the wider implications of ethnography and collecting.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

Reviews:
  • Kirimath
Until about two decades ago, Art History was mainly Western Art history. This book on the emerging topic of Fourth World's creativity, shows the very beginning of a shift of perspective, and a dent on the mainstream interpretation of art.
  • Datrim
This anthology illustrates the core problems in Native North American Art History by showing the paradoxes in its founding methodology. The essays deal directly with early scholars' and collectors' cultural barriers to understanding their subjects. The book provides examples of how to question the idealogical bases of what we often accept as the truth regarding the work.
I've found it to be immensely useful in a course that surveys the field; students develop a better appreciation for the work by studying the wider implications of ethnography and collecting. In particular, Marvin Cohodas' essay on Louisa Keyser often opens the way to new levels of understanding the contradictions in the discipline.
Anyone with a serious interest in native art should read this collection.
