Before and after the Horizon is the only book to consider the work of Anishinaabe artists overall and to discuss 500 years of Anishinaabe art history. This book--which accompanies an exhibition of the same title opening in August 2013 at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York--reveals how Anishinaabe (also known in the United States as Ojibwe or Chippewa) artists have expressed the deeply rooted spiritual and social dimensions of their relations with the Great Lakes region. It’s replete with beautiful color images of works by modern masters such as Norval Morrisseau, George Morrison, Blake Debassige, Patrick DesJarlait, and Rebecca Belmore as well as traditional Anishinaabe works such as quilled bags, painted drums, carved bowls, and beaded clothing. It provides readers with a deep understanding of the rich visual culture of a Native North American group that inhabits a widely populated area yet remains far less known than Plains and Southwest Native cultures. The essays represent original research by four renowned scholars of Native North American art.
