Me Artsy: An Exploration and Deconstruction of the Aboriginal Artistic Spirit. Ed. by Drew Hayden Taylor. Douglas & McIntyre Limited, Vancouver, 2015. 250 pp. 28 ills. 22 x 14 cm. ISBN 9781771620703 In English.
Publisher's description: There are a few questions that professional artists get asked regularly: Where do you get your ideas? How did you get started? And be honest -- are you really in it for the money? Following the highly successful Me Funny and Me Sexy anthologies, Me Artsy answers these eternal questions and more. With essays from fourteen First Nations artists from a variety of disciplines, the collection provides insight into the paths that led each artist to pursue and develop his or her craft. The essays explore many common themes around the role of art in First Nations communities, including the importance of art for creating social change, the role of art in representing Native culture and the fusion of traditional and contemporary techniques. On a more personal level, the essays describe the significance of art in the lives of the contributors, along with their sometimes unlikely journeys to success, stories which are often touched with humor and humility. Chef David Wolfman describes grueling years of prep work in the kitchens of the exclusive National Club; filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk discusses leaping into his first feature film without knowing how to finance it; fashion designer Kim Picard describes making a dress inspired by coffee beans; and playwright Drew Hayden Taylor tells the story of putting a bullet through his first play and burying it in his yard.

EDGAR HEAP OF BIRDS. Bill Anthes. Duke University Press, Durham, 2015. 232 pp. with 98 ills. (78 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2015-9508 ISBN 9780822359814 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 167178. Publisher's description: For over three decades, contemporary Native American artist Hock-E-Aye-Vi Edgar Heap of Birds has pursued a disciplined practice in multiple media, having shown his paintings, drawings, prints, and text-based conceptual art throughout numerous national and international galleries and public spaces. In this first book-length study of this important artist, Bill Anthes analyzes Heap of Birds's art and politics in relation to the international contemporary art scene, Native American history, and settler colonialism. Foregrounding how Heap of Birds roots his practice in Cheyenne spirituality and an indigenous way of seeing and being in the world, Anthes describes how Heap of Birds likens his art to weapons, delivering trenchant critiques of the loss of land, life, and autonomy endured by Native Americans. Whether appearing as interventions in public spaces or in a gallery, Heap of Birds's carefully-honed artworks -- sharp rocks -- pose questions about time, modernity, identity, power, and the meaning and value of contemporary art in a global culture.
