The American Indian art world and the (re- ) production of the primitive : Hopi pottery and potters by Lea S McChesney( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An emphasis on representing material production as primitive has misconstrued the local value of pottery making as culturally-constructed knowledge, and obscured the fact that selling pottery provides potters necessary knowledge of the larger society. The study examines potters' conceptions of authenticity and the social contexts of pottery production and sale. Selling has resulted in the alienation of knowledge from the community while also providing acquisition of new knowledge to construct a new pottery tradition, now threatened with alienation through saturation of art world practices. The study addresses issues in primitive art, commodities and consumption, and the processes of alienation through linking local and global sites in capitalist institutions and regimes of value
