Path Breakers is the third volume--following After the Storm--in a biennial series that brings the work of Native American fine artists to greater public attention. As Lucy Lippard writes in her introduction, the artists honored are "a wildly diverse and inventive lot." Paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, and installation pieces of variety, color, and power abound. Even a quick examination demonstrates Lippard's contention that "the infinitely various ways of negotiating cultural space are apparent in contemporary Native art."The 2003 Eiteljorg Fellowhip for Native American Fine Art honors as distinguished artist Kay WalkingStick (Cherokee) and names five fellows including Corwin "Corky" Clairmont (Salish /Kootenai), Robert Houle (Saulteaux), Nora Naranjo-Morse (Tewa-Santa Clara Pueblo), Nadia Myre (Algonquin), and Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie (Diné/Seminole/Muscogee). Essays have been contributed by Lucy Lippard, Margaret Archuleta (Pueblo/Hispanic), Gail Tremblay (Onandaga/Micmac), Bonnie Devine (Ojibway), Patricia Deadman, Jennifer C. Vigil, and Veronica Passalacqua.
