James Luna: Emendatio, New York, NY

March 1, 2008–April 20, 2008
New York, NY

Originally on exhibition at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia as part of the Venice Biennale 2005, this complex multimedia installation by James Luna (Luiseño) pays tribute to Pablo Tac, a 19th century Luiseño who traveled to Rome to study for the priesthood. Luna was named the Distinguished Artist of 2007 by the Eiteljorg Museum, where Emendatio was presented as part of their Fellowship for Native American Fine Art.
