Igloliorte, Heather, Julie Nagam, and Carla Taunton, eds. “Indigenous Art,” PUBLIC vol. 54 (2016).
With this edition of PUBLIC journal, the editors seek to explore the themes and methods of resistance to colonial modernism to be found in contemporary Indigenous art. The edition foregrounds the subversive use of technology by Indigenous artists in their depiction and cultivation of cultural resilience and storytelling. By showing the ways in which Indigenous art both “contributes to” and “intervenes on” conventional academic fields of art study, they provide a framework for imagining museums and archives as decolonized spaces.
