In contemporary rhythm : the art of Ernest L. Blumenschein by Peter H Hassrick( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text by Peter H. Hassrick and Elizabeth J. Cunningham draws on Blumenschein's papers as well as other archival sources to explore in depth the dimensions of his multifaceted life and his place in American history and culture. They examine his sixty-four-year artistic career, first as an illustrator and then a painter, revealing how his technique evolved and how his schooling and the artistic movements of his time informed his work. The authors demonstrate how Blumenschein's musical training profoundly influenced his painting, and they address issues overlooked in previous studies, such as Blumenschein's pivotal role in helping to preserve American Indian culture. Additional contributions by noted art historians focus on particular paintings, such as Superstition (1921) and Jury of the Trial of a Sheepherder for Murder (1936), and particular aspects of the artist's work, including modernism and his promotion of American Indian rights." "In Contemporary Rhythm shows that, far from simply a western painter, Blumenschein is a major figure in twentieth-century American art, bridging traditionalism and modernism. As the only book of its kind available on this influential artist, it is a major contribution to American art history. It is also a visual feast."--Jacket

Wide ruins : memories from a Navajo trading post by Sallie R Wagner( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newlyweds Sallie Wagner and Bill Lippincott came to the Navajo Reservation in 1938. Before they knew it, they owned a trading post at Wide Ruins, Arizona. The years they spent there were the best of their lives, and this lively, honest memoir recalls them in detaIl. Trading post life combined business with the kinds of experiences generally associated with anthropological field work. Like many traders, Sallie Wagner influenced the weavers whose rugs she purchased. She was one of the traders who persuaded weavers to use vegetal dyes, leaving a permanent legacy in Navajo weaving. Tourists discovered Indian reservations in the 1930s, and the Lippincotts were visited often by friends and strangers alike, many unable to navigate reservation roads
Behind closed doors : art in the Spanish American home, 1492-1898( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experimental geography by Nato Thompson( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The manifestations of 'experimental geography' (a term coined by geographer Trevor Paglen in 2002) run the gamut of contemporary art practice today: sewn cloth cities that spill out of suitcases, bus tours through water treatment centers, performers climbing up the sides of buildings, and sound works capturing the buzz of electric waves on the power grid. In the hands of contemporary artists, the study of humanity's engagement with the earth's surface becomes a riddle best solved in experimental fashion. The exhibition presents a panoptic view of this new practice, through a wide range of mediums including sound and video installations, photography, sculpture, and experimental cartography. The approaches used by the artists featured in Experimental Geography range from the poetic to the empirical. The more pragmatic techniques include those used by the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) in projects made with students and other non-art groups that aim to strengthen peoples' roles as agents of change in their own environments. See, for example, their map intended to help longshoremen and truckers identify chokepoints in the cargo trade network. In their similarly empirical projects, the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a research organization, examines the nature and extent of human interaction with the earth's surface. CLUI embraces a multidisciplinary approach that forces a reading of the American landscape (such as the disfiguring effects of culling natural resources from the picturesque banks of the Hudson River), thereby refamiliarizing viewers with the overlooked details of their everyday experience."--Publisher's description

Mabel Dodge Luhan & company : American moderns and the West( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Taos, Mabel and her husband, Antonio "Tony" Lujan of Taos Pueblo, built an enclave that consisted of a seventeen-room "Big House" and five guesthouses. From 1918 through 1947, scores of visitors found her home and its environs an inspiring place where they could help to create a new national art and culture. In Taos, West coast luminaries crossed paths with East Coast movers and shakers. With Luhan as their guide, hostess, and impressario, these European and American talents found inspiration in the mesas, mountains, Hispano villages, and INdian pueblos of northern New Mexico. This book - copiously illustrated with works by major artists and drawing on extensive collections of archival and scholarly research - illuminates the regional, national, and international significance of Luhan's life and legacy."

Making it modern : the folk art collection of Elie and Viola Nadelman by Margaret K Hofer( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lavishly illustrated volume is the first comprehensive study of the folk art collection purchased by the New-York Historical Society from Elie and Viola Nadelman in 1937. Exhibited by the couple from 1926 to 1937 in their pioneering Museum of Folk and Peasant Arts in Riverdale, New York, the nearly fifteen thousand works come from a collection spanning six centuries, thirteen countries, and a broad range of media. Authors Margaret K. Hofer and Roberta J.M. Olson explore a nucleus of some two hundred and sixteen highlights in eighty-seven catalog entries, as well as nine of Nadelman's own sculptures, and consider the possible interchanges between the Nadelman's collecting and his avant-garde art. Their research, employing new archival evidence from the Historical Society and the rich cache of Nadelman Papers, has resulted in exciting discoveries, among them Nadelman's active role in restoring some of his folk art objects. Featuring seven provocative essays, "Making It Modern" breaks new ground not only on the Nadelmans and folk art, but also in the history of American art and taste during the fast-paced cultural revolutions of the early twentieth century. Exhibition: New York Historical Society (20.05 - 21.08.2016) / Albuquerque Museum of Art, USA (06.09. - 29.11.2015) / Addison Gallery, Andover, USA (17.09. - 31.12.2016)
