Path Breakers is the third volume—following After the Storm—in a biennial series that brings the work of Native American fine artists to greater public attention. As Lucy Lippard writes in her introduction, the artists honored are "a wildly diverse and inventive lot." Paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, and installation pieces of variety, color, and power abound. Even a quick examination demonstrates Lippard's contention that "the infinitely various ways of negotiating cultural space are apparent in contemporary Native art."
