An Indigenous Present


An Indigenous Present

A monumental gathering  showcasing diverse approaches to Indigenous concepts, forms and mediums. This landmark volume is a gathering of over 60 Native North American contemporary artists, musicians, filmmakers, choreographers, architects, writers, photographers, designers and more.  Conceived by Jeffrey Gibson, a renowned artist of Mississippi Choctaw and Cherokee descent, An Indigenous Present presents an increasingly visible and expanding field of Indigenous creative practice.

It centers individual practices, while acknowledging shared histories, to create a visual experience that foregrounds diverse approaches to concept, form and medium as well as connection, influence, conversation and collaboration. An Indigenous Present foregrounds transculturalism over affiliation and contemporaneity over outmoded categories.


This is a gorgeous coffee table book that offers a visual delight of art by the leading practitioners of contemporary art from the Native American, Alaska Native, Inuit, and First Nations communities...I'd highly recommend.--Bishara Hakim "Hyperallergic"
