Art Quantum: The Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art presents a selection of the extraordinary work created by the five artists selected for the 2009 Eiteljorg Fellowship. It is the goal of the Eiteljorg Fellowship to be a starting point and a platform for exploration of Aboriginal identity and artistic expression beyond the concepts of blood quantum laws. Essays by James Nottage, Jennifer Complo McNutt, Ashley Holland (Cherokee), and Paul Chaat Smith (Comanche) help to situate the larger issue of Aboriginal identity in the contemporary art world. Colour photographs of the art created by Jim Denomie (Ojibwe), Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band of Choctaw/Cherokee), Faye HeavyShield (Kainai-Blood), Wendy Red Star (Crow), and Invited Artist, Edward Poitras (Gordon First Nations/Métis) are represented throughout this 96-page exhibition catalogue. 90 colour images of photography, installation work, drawing, printmaking and painting appear in the book.
