The American Indian art world and the (re- ) production of the primitive : Hopi pottery and potters by Lea S McChesney ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The First Mesa Hopi Reservation community has long been recognized for its pottery, an indigenous medium that has achieved recognition as art. Ethnographic and historical documentation provide data to explore the transformation of Hopi pots from artifact to art and potters from vanishing Indians to Native American artists in the twentieth century. Yet contemporary art world practices codify concerns about an authentic "primitive technology" developed in the nineteenth century natural history paradigm of collecting and evaluation. How the codification of value came about, the tension over authenticity generated by pottery's recontextualization within Anglo institutions, and the impact of a century of market production on the community are examined in this study. A multi-sited ethnography of the production, circulation, and consumption of traditional Hopi pottery as American Indian art, the study investigates the social organization, cultural construction and historic formation of this Indian art world
