An Indigenous Present

A monumental gathering of more than 60 contemporary artists, photographers, musicians, writers and more, showcasing diverse approaches to Indigenous concepts, forms and mediums — A Wall Street Journal 2023 holiday gift guide pick

This landmark volume is a gathering of Native North American contemporary artists, musicians, filmmakers, choreographers, architects, writers, photographers, designers and more. Conceived by Jeffrey Gibson, a renowned artist of Mississippi Choctaw and Cherokee descent, An Indigenous Present presents an increasingly visible and expanding field of Indigenous creative practice. It centers individual practices, while acknowledging shared histories, to create a visual experience that foregrounds diverse approaches to concept, form and medium as well as connection, influence, conversation and collaboration. An Indigenous Present foregrounds transculturalism over affiliation and contemporaneity over outmoded categories.
Artists include: Neal Ambrose-Smith, Teresa Baker, Natalie Ball, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Rebecca Belmore, Andrea Carlson, Nani Chacon, Raven Chacon, Dana Claxton, Melissa Cody, Chris T. Cornelius, Lewis deSoto, Beau Dick, Demian DineYazhií, Wally Dion, Divide and Dissolve, Korina Emmerich, Kaíila Farrell-Smith, Yatika Starr Fields, Nicholas Galanin, Raven Halfmoon, Elisa Harkins, Luzene Hill, Anna Hoover, Sky Hopinka, Chaz John, Emily Johnson, Brian Jungen, Brad Kahlhamer, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Adam Khalil, Zack Kahlil, Kite, Layli Long Soldier, Erica Lord, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Tanya Lukin Linklater, James Luna, Dylan McLaughlin, Meryl McMaster, Caroline Monnet, Audie Murray, New Red Order, Jamie Okuma, Laura Ortman, Katherine "KP" Paul/Black Belt Eagle Scout, Postcommodity, Wendy Red Star, Eric-Paul Riege, Cara Romero, Sara Siestreem, Rose B. Simpson, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie, Anna Tsouhlarakis, Arielle Twist, Marie Watt, Dyani White Hawk and Zoon a.k.a. Daniel Glen Monkman.


Spreadsófeaturing work by Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and Jamie Griffiths and Erica Lordóare from An Indigenous Present.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Bishara Hakim

This is a gorgeous coffee table book that offers a visual delight of art by the leading practitioners of contemporary art from the Native American, Alaska Native, Inuit, and First Nations communities...I'd highly recommend.

IndigiNews

Kayla Macinnis

A large-format book with beautiful images that includes thoughts from curators, poets and writers Ė all while infusing the cultural and distinctly different identities of communities.

Document Journal

Maya Kotomori

Narrative breaks follow sumptuous art photography throughout An Indigenous Present, manifesting the projectís mission to marry concept, form, and medium as well as connection, influence, and conversation.

The New York Times Book Review

Lauren Christensen

Challenges the outsiderís destructive fascination with Indigenous cultures, inverting and inviting it into a new perspective authored by Indigenous artists themselves.

LA Weekly

Shana Nys Dambrot

This hefty and highly anticipated new book represents an unprecedented and overdue survey of scores of Indigenous artists and creators.

Colossal

Kate Mothes

The nearly 450-page volume renders solid a new paradigm of representation and visibility of Native North American art.

Cultured

Kat Herriman

It is the only book of its kind, and it takes this burden seriously by highlighting what is unique to and shared by the featured artists.

Wall Street Journal

Ann Landi

Perhaps no title could be more of-the-moment than ďAn Indigenous PresentĒ...showcases a stunning diversity of approaches that draw on Native American traditions and histories.

Artblog

Andrea Kirsh

The photographs alone will ensure that many readers will want to see more. Glorious color illustrations, in full-page and two-page spreads, eloquently make the case that a wealth of art exists that deserves to be known.

Brooklyn Rail

Maymanah Farhat

Overlapping themes, histories, and creative strategiesóin addition to outward displays and forms of solidarityóare evident throughout An Indigenous Present, and likely reflect not only Gibsonís incisive work as an editor but also a creative network that is held together by a commitment to future forms of collectivity.

Hyperallergic

Nancy Zastudil

The book defied my expectations. Itís truly a gift, showing how these Indigenous artists are setting the standards for creative realms that are yet to be defined, while also carrying their traditions and communities forward.

Highly anticipated 'An Indigenous Present'

Highly anticipated 'An Indigenous Present'

Featured spreads are from An Indigenous Present, the superb 448-page new release gathering more than 60 Native North American contemporary artists, musicians, poets, choreographers, designers, filmmakers, performance artists, architects, collectives and writers, published by DelMonico Books and Big NDN Press. Edited by American Mississippi Chocktaw/Cherokee painter and sculptor Jeffrey Gibson and designed by Montreal-based Cree/NÍhiżaw graphic design studio OTAMI-, this is one of the most highly anticipated books on our list this season. In his introduction, Gibson writes, ďItís no secret that, at various points in my life, Iíve considered quitting being a professional artist. Iíve spoken about this publicly, and Iíve done so because I wanted to be transparent about the challenges of identifying as a Native/Indigenous artist. The historically pervasive racism of institutions and the market left me feeling like I had to do everything on my own. It was too difficult, too often, for too many reasons, but what really rattled me was the ways Iíd come to accept ó or perhaps Ďmetabolizeí is a better word ó the racism in the art world. It has taken me two decades to recognize racismís edges, the way it feels and looks, its pervasive reach. In the art world, it is typically subtle, superficially well intentioned, and extremely polite in its delivery. In response, I have often felt a responsibility to assume the role of mediator and educator, which Iíve done as gracefully as I could in any given context. An Indigenous Present has emerged as much out of my dissatisfaction with the circumstances I have navigated during my own career as it has from witnessing artists who proudly identify as Indigenous carve out their own creative spaces and, collectively, manifest both local and international contexts for their artworks.Ē
