Robes of splendor : Native American painted buffalo hides by George P Horse Capture( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, ornamental robes made of buffalo hide were painted by artists of the various Indian nations. Brought back to the French kings in the eighteenth century, the robes represented here are now housed in the Musee de l'Homme in Paris, and together they make a stunning tribute to a bygone art form. These robes, spectacularly executed and perfectly conserved, offer a pictographic representation of early native American life. As George P. Horse Capture observes in his essay on the craft and history of buffalo hide painting, we see the largely symbolic, complex geometric patterns painted by women contrasted with the more realistic, narrative scenes painted by men, depicting battles and dances. Both kinds of design played an important role in native American society as messages for tribe members as well as for their visitors, and both share a powerful visual appeal. With introductory and historical essays by three experts on Native American art, a preface by W. Richard West, Jr., the director of the National Museum of the American Indian, and over a hundred photographs of the hides

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An ambitious journey of the nineteenth century was the third voyage of the French explorer Dumont d'Urville, from 1837-1840. It was just before the invention of photography, when phrenology, the study of people's skulls, was the latest thing. D'Urville chose to take on the voyage an eminent phrenologist, Pierre-Marie Dumoutier, to preserve likenesses of people by making life casts ... Fiona Pardington first learned of the life casts in 2007, which initiated a four-year project. It took her from Auckland to the Musée de l'Homme [in Paris], as she researched and photographed some of more than fifty casts of Māori, Pacific and European heads, including casts of her Ngāi Tahu ancestors"--Jacket flap

The exhibition dismantles the categorization and hierarchization processes to better understand the phenomena of racialization and racism. By mixing the experimental approach and the study of historical examples - American segregation, French colonialism, Nazism, genocide in Rwanda, etc. -, it invites to a new apprehension, at once immersive and reflexive, of the contemporary situation in France
