Abstract (English)

Following an introduction to the international exhibition that was the occasion for this publication, 20 essays investigate the "fourth world" of overrun indigenous peoples and 19th-century Indian/White relations, and proceed to examine Northwest Coast Native and Inuit art. Northwest Coast art and culture are surveyed from 1880 to the present and are discussed with reference to politics, economy, and society, modernism and postmodernism, and the "renaissance" of the art of the Coast. Inuit culture from 1800 to 1988 is examined in like manner, including discussions of sculpture, textiles, and prints, aesthetics, and interviews with artists. Circa 450 bibl. ref.
