Lewis & Clark Territory: Contemporary Artists Revisit Place, Race, and Memory Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lewis and Clark expedition holds an unrivaled position in the American imagination. Over the course of two hundred years, the expedition has become one of the primary symbols of American identity: rugged individuals conquering the entire breadth of a continent and defining a new nation. This book reevaluates the expedition and its impact on American culture. Following the spirit of intense documentation in the journals of Lewis and Clark, it presents a visual journal of recent art that examines the increasingly complex relationship between the land and contemporary culture. Mainstream contemporary works as well as recent art created in traditional and innovative Native American techniques, such as carving, beadwork, and basketry, are featured. Nationally noted artists include Robert Adams, Anne Appleby, Michael Brophy, Joe Feddersen, James Lavadour, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith.

Rock Hushka is associate curator of the Tacoma Art Museum. Thomas Red Owl Haukaas is a writer and artist.

Book News Annotation:

This catalogue accompanies a scholarly exhibition by the same name, which begins its national tour at the Tacoma Art Museum February- June, 2004, in conjunction with the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Drawing parallels between the two-centuries-old journals of Lewis and Clark and contemporary visual arts, it highlights the role of contemporary artists as modern-day explorers of the American landscape and as journalists reporting on the American experience. The text includes a detailed essay by Hushka (associate curator, Tacoma Art Museum) on ways in which place, race, and memory reverberate across the span of two centuries. Illustrated throughout with b&w and color photographs. No subject index.
