Summary
Ten contributing authors from different areas of expertise, plus hundreds of photos, insightfully show how baskets convey meaning through the artists' selection of materials; the techniques they use; and the colors, designs, patterns, and textures they employ. Accompanying a museum exhibition of the same name, Rooted, revived, reinvented illustrates how the processes of industrialization changed the audiences, materials, and uses for basketry. It also surveys the landscape of basketry today; while some contemporary artists seek to maintain and revive traditions practiced for centuries, others combine age-old techniques with nontraditional materials to generate cultural commentary.
