Native universe : voices of Indian America( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in conjunction with the opening of the National Museum of the American Indian's new building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Native Universe offers readers a deeper understanding of Native philosophies, histories, and identities. Featuring essays by such distinguished Native Americans as Vine Deloria, Jr. (Standing Rock Sioux), Wilma Mankiller (Cherokee), Victor Montejo (Maya), and many more, Native Universe reveals the rich heritage and true diversity of the Indian Americas. Seneca author John C. Mohawk explores the profound meaning of ceremonial life and its intimate connections with the land, while Luci Tapahonso shows how ancestral traditions still shape modern Navajo life. Brenda J. Child (Red Lake Ojibwe) presents a poignant chronicle of the impact of Indian boarding schools on Native families and cultures, while Comanche writer Paul Chaat Smith recounts his days as an activist in the turbulent 1970s, when the American Indian Movement's drive for justice and political recognition led to new confrontations at Alcatraz, Wounded Knee, and Washington, D.C. Poems by Louise Erdrich and N. Scott Momaday, and a scene from Sherman Alexie's screenplay, Smoke Signals, are examples of a literary renaissance in which Native writers have captured the respect and imagination of the world. In visual counterpoint, 300 full-color illustrations depict examples of indigenous cultures, from dramatic ceremonial masks to intricate baskets and exquisite beadwork, that speak of the historical experience of Native peoples throughout the hemisphere and attest to their vitality today. Here too are photographs that depict the full range of Native life, from vibrant images of powwow dancing to the concentration of an artist at work, as well as contemporary Indian art that melds long-established themes with a thoroughly modern sensibility
First American art : the Charles and Valerie Diker collection of American Indian art by Bruce Bernstein( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First American Art: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection of American Indian Art accompanies a major exhibition of more than 200 Native American objects from the private collection of Charles and Valerie Diker. Like the exhibition, this illustrated volume is organized around seven principles of an indigenous aesthetic - idea, emotion, intimacy, movement, integrity, vocabulary, and composition - that are embodied in Native objects." "First American Art: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection of American Indian Art is the product of a collaboration among Native and non-Native curators, scholars, and artists who share a deep commitment to articulating and heightening an understanding of American Indian aesthetics and to fostering an awareness of the exceptional beauty of Native art. With this book and exhibition, they introduce a new paradigm for the publication and display of Native American art - one in which its objects are appreciated as true works of art as well as significant cultural artifacts."--Jacket

18th Biennale of Sydney 2012 : all our relations by Biennale of Sydney( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time in the Biennale of Sydney's 39-year history, the exhibition was developed by a curatorial duo, Artistic Directors Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster. The 18th Biennale of Sydney was presented at the Art Gallery of New South Wales; the newly redeveloped Museum of Contemporary Art Australia; World Heritage-listed former shipyard and prison, Cockatoo Island; and Pier 2/3 in Walsh Bay. For the first time, Redfern-based arts institution Carriageworks was a presenting partner. Beginning with the two curators in dialogue, the curatorial premise all our relations provided a collaborative framework, allowing conversations to extend to both artists and audiences. Exploring new ideas from unexpected voices around the world, the 18th Biennale of Sydney showcased more than 220 works by over 100 artists hailing from Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific, the Americas, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East. Nearly half the artists (49) have created works specifically for this exhibition, including many substantial collaborative installations. Seventy-one (71) international and interstate artists travelled to Sydney to oversee the installation of their work and to participate in the opening week program of artist talks and events"--18th Biennale of Sydney (2012) website
Remix : new modernities in a post-Indian world( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Remix: New Modernities in a Post-Indian World, artists and curators Joe Baker (Choctaw) and Gerald McMaster (Plains Cree) bring together the work of fifteen artists of mixed Native/non-Native heritage from the United States, Canada, and Mexico to create a mini-museum of the here and now in contemporary Native art. Personal and political, this art and the accompany texts raise issues that resonate far beyond the American art scene--questions about the meaning of ethnic and racial identity in an increasingly global society; the tension between self-expression and the templates of mass culture; and individuals' freedom to adapt or reject elements of tradition without losing their claim on the past
The cowboy/Indian show : recent work by Gerald McMaster : catalogue text by Allan J Ryan( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A humourous and informative presentation of McMasters' 16 piece series. In response to the 1990 Oka confrontation between soldiers and Mohawk "Warriors," Cree artist Gerald McMaster began a series of 16 paintings in playful response to the absurd pairing of a profession (cowboy) and with a race of people (Indian). Apart from their great visual appeal, the paintings are distinguished by the artist's use of humour to address serious issues: the viewer is challenged to reflect on a variety of important concerns and see them from a Native perspective."--Pub. website

The future now : Canada's libraries, archives, and public memory : a report of the Royal Society of Canada's Expert Panel on the Status and Future of Canada's Libraries and Archives by Royal Society of Canada( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1950s debate has raged about the impact of new technologies on print culture in the broadest sense and on the publishing industry, libraries, and archives in particular. Succinctly put, “The Death of the Book” has been both proclaimed and denied. Meanwhile, notions of what constitutes a library or an archive have been challenged and transformed by new communications competencies and needs. In response to these realities, the Royal Society of Canada is establishing an Expert Panel on “The Future Now: Canada's Libraries, Archives, and Public Memory”
