Abstract (English)

Published for the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America, this collection of essays, artist's statements, and documentation of works by 19 artists was intended to counter the Eurocentric nature of these celebrations. Webster and Ipellie review the effects of colonization on First Nations heritage; Wendayete examines the materialist logic of Canadian non-Native historiography and contrasts this to the notion of philosophical "americity"; Todd and Young Man attack notions of postmodernism and ghettoization in art, respectively. Biographical notes on 8 authors and 19 artists. Bibl. 7 p.
