Honouring Tradition: Reframing Native Art brings new perspectives to historical and contemporary Aboriginal art.
To explore the diverse ways this art can be understood, the Glenbow Museum invited Aboriginal elders, leaders and artists to share their perspectives with non-Native museum staff. The resulting dialogue highlights the complexity of Aboriginal art from the northern plains to the subarctic regions of Canada.
Links to tradition, history and culture can be seen in artwork both old and new - from a lavishly beaded mossbag made in the 1890s, to a work created in 2006 by chiseling, drilling, sanding and assembling circuit boards.
The breadth of Aboriginal art in this publication, lavishly documented in more than 65 full-colour photographs, honours the importance of community, the connection to land and place and the tradition of storytelling.
