Description

This book unfolds a history of American basketry, from its origins in Native American, immigrant, and slave communities to its contemporary presence in the fine art world.

Ten contributing authors from different areas of expertise, plus over 250 photos, insightfully show how baskets convey meaning through the artists’ selection of materials; the techniques they use; and the colors, designs, patterns, and textures they employ.

Accompanying a museum exhibition of the same name, the book illustrates how the processes of industrialization changed the audiences, materials, and uses for basketry. It also surveys the visual landscape of basketry today; while some contemporary artists seek to maintain and revive traditions practiced for centuries, others combine age-old techniques with nontraditional materials to generate cultural commentary.

This comprehensive treasury will be of vital interest to artists, collectors, curators, and historians of American basketry, textiles, and sculpture. Size: 8 1/2" x 11". 208 pages; hard cover with 248 color & b/w images.

From the exhibition curated by Kristin Schwain & Josephine Stealey. Sponsored by the National Basketry Organization and the University of Missouri. The exhibition tours 2017 - 2020. http://americanbasketry.missouri.edu/exhibition/venues/ (opens in a new window). If you have the opportunity, please attend the exhibition.
