Revealing a distinct modernism in North American art, this catalog focuses on the creativity of its Native American population, highlighting for the first time the extensive collection in Berlin's Ethnological Museum. Ranging from the 1970s to the present, it traces the historical development of modern Native American art up to 1962, when the Institute of American Indian Arts was founded in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A detailed compilation of statements from Native American artists, renowned art historians, critics, and curators is featured, summarizing the North American perspective on the subject. Topics such as cultural self-determination and Native American involvement in World War II are addressed, and a chronicle of the important milestones in modern Native American art, detailed artist biographies, and a list of works on exhibit are also included.
