Description

Red: Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship 2013, the eighth iteration of the Eiteljorg Museum’s acclaimed biennial art series, documents the strength, drama, determination, and humor of contemporary First Nations art and the artists who create it. Celebrating the work of Invited Artist Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun (Coast Salish/Okanagan) and Eiteljorg Fellows Julie Buffalohead (Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma), Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit/Aleut), Shan Goshorn (Eastern Band of Cherokee), and Meryl McMaster (Plains Cree/Blackfoot), Red declares that any person who lives with the idea that First Nations people are vanishing, weak, or failing to thrive needs simply to look at their art. Ashley Holland (Cherokee) is Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Eiteljorg Museum. Jennifer Complo McNutt is Curator of Contemporary Art at the Eiteljorg Museum and has been instrumental in the development and success of the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship since its inception in 1999. This exhibition catalogue is 134-pages with 106 colour photographs of the artists' works, and contains an index. The curators' have written specific critiques of each artist's work and these are interspersed with artists' statements.
