Summary

This remarkable book provides an absorbing exploration of the work of James Luna (Luiseno). Essays by the book's editors reveal how Luna has dramatically expanded the language, territory, and possibilities of Indian art through his emotionally compelling performances and installations. His work--which includes film, music, and video--challenges and confronts commonly held perceptions about Native Americans. James Luna: Emendatio complements an exhibition of the same title presented by the National Museum of the American Indian at the 2005 Venice Biennale's 51st International Art Exhibition. The book is accompanied by a DVD featuring footage of a rehearsal of Luna's performance at the exhibition.
