Diversity and Dialogue honors Distinguished Artist James Luna (Luiseño) and five Fellows: installation artist and sculptor Gerald Clarke (Cahuilla), photographer and videographer Dana Claxton (Lakota), painter and installation artist Sonya Kelliher-Combs (Inupiaq/Athabascan), artist Larry Tee Harbor Jackson McNeil (Tlingit/Nisgaá), and photographer and installation artist Will Wilson (Diné).
An accompanying DVD presents James Luna's in-your-face performance works that question stereotypes about Native Americans. Vibrant essays consider how he and the other artists produce works that are both contemporary yet expressive of a traditional worldview.
