Edited by Lois P. Rudnick and MaLin Wilson-Powell Introduction by Wanda M. Corn With essays by Lois P. Rudnick, MaLin Wilson-Powell, and Carmella Padilla Published in association with the Harwood Museum of Art Mabel Dodge Luhan (1879–1962) was a political, social, and cultural visionary; salon hostess; and collector of genius in almost every field of modernism—painting, photography, drama, psychology, radical politics, social reform, and Native American rights. Luhan spent her adult life building utopian communities, first, as an expatriate in Florence (1905–12) working to recreate the Renaissance; next as a “New Woman” in Greenwich Village (1912–15), hosting one of the most famous salons in American history; and finally, in Taos, the “New World” (1918–47), bringing together a community of artists, writers, and social reformers whom she believed would convince their fellow Americans of northern New Mexico’s potential for personal, aesthetic, and national revitalization. In Taos, Mabel and her husband, Antonio “Tony” Lujan of Taos Pueblo, built an enclave that consisted of a seventeen-room “Big House” and five guesthouses. From 1918 through 1939, scores of friends found her home and its environs a place of personal and aesthetic renewal where they could help to create a new national art and culture. In Taos, West Coast luminaries crossed paths with East Coast “movers and shakers.” The visitors included writers D. H. Lawrence, Jean Toomer, Mary Austin, and Frank Waters; set designer Robert Edmond Jones; composer Carlos Chávez and musical impresario Leopold Stokowski; choreographer Martha Graham; and anthropologists Elsie Clews Parsons and John Collier. With Mabel as their guide, hostess, and impresario, these European and American talents found inspiration in the mesas, mountains, Hispanic villages, and Indian pueblos of northern New Mexico. Modernist works by painters and photographers, including Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams, Rebecca Strand, and Paul Strand, are featured alongside indigenous art that inspired their modernist sensibilities—Native American painters like San Ildefonso Pueblo’s Awa Tsireh and Taos Pueblo’s Pop Chalee, whose work Mabel supported, and traditional Hispano devotional art she collected. Illustrated with works by major artists and drawing on an extensive collection of scrapbooks, photographs, and letters, this book illuminates Mabel’s life and legacy as a cultural catalyst. It accompanies an exhibition at the Harwood Museum of Art opening on May 22, 2016.

N uevomexicanos por V ida , ’81–’83 By Kevin Bubriski Foreword by Miguel Gandert Kevin Bubriski, a New Englander, first arrived in New Mexico in 1981 to study filmmaking. He was experienced in still photography and using a 35-millimeter camera and hand-cranked 16mm Bolex, he began his exploration of New Mexican culture. His first photographic subject was Santa Fean Leroy Perea carrying a large, homemade wooden cross over his shoulder on his solitary walk of penance, heading north through Nambé to El Santuario de Chimayó. Over the next few years his subjects would be native New Mexicans—Nuevomexicanos—who trace their ancestry to the Spanish arrival in the New World. Bubriski’s ima g es, taken more than thirty years a g o , have b e en resurrected. Viewing the photographs of youth hanging out at parks, the faces in the crowds at fiestas and the State Fair, is remarkably like thumbing through a high school yearbook or a photo album we haven’t seen for years. As we look at the photographs, we wonder if we know that person, that place. Bubriski’s black-and-white photographs, framed with thick black borders, reveal subjects who are unexpectedly at ease with him and his camera. Many of these photographs are timeless, while others are a time capsule of the early eighties. This collection will evoke nostalgia for the era and life in New Mexico. There is a universality about the images and time period that will appeal to wider audiences. Kevin Bubriski’s photographs are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, International Center of Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

CHASING THE CURE IN NEW MEXICO T uberculosis and the Q uest for H ealth By Nancy Owen Lewis Foreword by Joan M. Jensen

Lungers in Robes at the Albuquerque Sanatorium, c. 1917. From Chasing the Cure in New Mexico: Tuberculosis and the Quest for Health.

This book draws upon years of research to tell the story of the thousands of “health seekers” who journeyed to New Mexico from 1870 to 1940 seeking a cure for tuberculosis (TB), the leading killer in the United States at the time. By 1920 such health seekers represented an estimated 10 percent of New Mexico’s population. The influx of “lungers” as they were called because TB usually affects the lungs—doctors, lawyers, writers, artists, and business leaders—many of whom remained in New Mexico, would play a critical role in New Mexico’s struggle for statehood and in its growth. The movement also spawned an entire industry, which gave a much-needed boost to New Mexico’s struggling economy. Nearly sixty sanatoriums were established around the state, laying the groundwork for the state’s current health-care system. Although the tubercle bacillus, the bacterium that causes TB, had been isolated in 1882, the development of streptomycin and other drugs did not occur until the 1940s. During the intervening decades, the medically-approved treatment for TB consisted of nutritious food, fresh air, and rest, preferably in a high, dry, and sunny place. New Mexico—with its high elevation, abundant sunshine, and dry climate—was considered ideal. Officials promoted New Mexico’s healthful climate, and the legislature provided tax breaks for construction of sanatoriums throughout the state. Among New Mexico’s prominent lungers were artists Will Shuster and Carlos Vierra, who “came to heal and stayed to paint.” Bronson Cutting, brought to Santa Fe on a stretcher in 1910, became the influential publisher of the Santa Fe New Mexican and a powerful US Senator. Others included William R.

Lovelace and Edgar T. Lassetter, founders of the Lovelace Clinic, as well as Senator Clinton P. Anderson, poet Alice Corbin Henderson, architect John Gaw Meem, aviator Katherine Stinson, and Dorothy McKibben, gatekeeper for the Manhattan Project. New Mexico’s most infamous outlaw, Billy the Kid, first arrived in New Mexico when his mother, Catherine Antrim, sought treatment in Silver City. Along with the unexpected benefits, the health-seeker movement incited concerns about contagion, most of it directed toward indigent Anglos who couldn’t afford sanatorium treatment and were essentially homeless. Physicians feared they would spread the disease to native New Mexicans, who were previously thought to be immune to the disease. This concern was validated in 1918 when a survey revealed both Hispanos and American Indians had high rates of infection. The revelation was the catalyst for the establishment of a state Department of Health and programs to address the epidemic. The healthseeker movement, though strong during the 1920s declined sharply during the Great Depression of the 1930s. The number of health seekers dwindled, and sanatoriums closed. By 1940 the era was over. Although this movement has largely faded from public consciousness, its impact was considerable and its legacy endures.

A dventures in P hysics and P ueblo P ottery M emoirs of a L os A lamos S cientist

By Francis H. Harlow with Dwight P. Lanmon

“This book recognizes the wonderful opportunities that have filled my many years of life. The text describes the three fields of published research that have been of importance to me: the physical dynamics of disturbed materials; the history of the oceans that covered this area with ancient life; and the history of the Pueblo Indians, especially the pottery they produced.”—F rancis H. H arlow , from the preface

Francis H. Harlow (b. 1928) is highly regarded as a leading authority on Pueblo Indian pottery, a field of study he pursued on his own after moving to New Mexico to work as a physicist. In this memoir, Harlow describes his life growing up in Washington state, service in the US Army during World War II, college years, and his fifty-year career as a physicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. It was his move to the Southwest that provided the impetus for his lifelong “hobby”—the study of Pueblo history and pottery. His contributions to the field of fluid dynamics have been no less remarkable. Harlow’s scientific and scholarly pursuits were augmented by his artistic talent as a painter, a skill he applied to his work in pottery and science. Harlow’s interest in native cultures and ceramics began with fossils he encountered at Jemez Springs and Nambé Falls. For forty years he classified and dated pottery, including fragments he found. Through his knowledge of individual pueblo styles and periods he was often able to identify in museum and private collections pottery makers that were previously unnamed. Over the years Harlow met and interacted with many living Pueblo artists including the famous San Ildefonso potter Maria Martinez. Harlow amassed a remarkable collection of Pueblo Indian pottery, which is now in the permanent collection at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe. Harlow’s myriad scientific and artistic contributions are evidence that he is truly a renaissance man for our times.

By Nicolasa Chávez

By Jerry West

This beautiful, opulently illustrated volume looks at the dance, music, fashion/costumes; the history and culture ; the posters, playbills and historical photographs, that chronicle flamenco’s growth from a rural, folkloric tradition that began in fifteenth-century Arabic Spain to—by the 1890’s—one of the most compelling attractions in the most sophisticated cities of Europe. Characterized by elegant dancers, elaborate sets and dress, and accompanied by classically trained guitarists, flamenco expressed the desires of an influential segment of society. The “Spanish craze” spread across America like wildfire. New Mexico quickly made Flamenco its own in the 1960s, resulting in, among others, two wellknown flamenco groups: the Festival Flamenco Internacional de Albuquerque and Maria Benitez’s Teatro Flamenco, and the celebration of the art in every community large and small in the state.

A S elective R etrospective

Essays by Rebecca Solnit and MaLin Wilson-Powell Foreword by Joseph Traugott “This striking monograph captures the evolution of New Mexico surrealist painter West’s themes and aesthetics over more than three decades. An essay by artist MaLin Wilson-Powell describes West’s eclectic childhood in a household filled with ‘whomever the Dust Bowl blew onto their property.’ Cultural critic Rebecca Solnit describes West’s output as a ‘bestiary, a regional atlas, a natural history, an autobiography, a dream journal, and maybe an alchemical treatise.’... The prairie landscape features prominently in West’s work—often depicted from a bird’s eye view, usually with a touch of the bizarre. West’s surrealist tendencies make him an interesting outlier among artists from New Mexico.”—Publishers Weekly Jacketed Clothbound: $50.00  ISBN 978-0-89013-603-4 192 pages, 104 color plates, 18 illustrations, 10 x 12

Edited by Maxine E. McBrinn Essays by Linda J. Pierce and Erik O. Berg In 1927, the year Charles A. Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic Ocean, he was approached by Alfred V. Kidder of the Carnegie Institution to photograph ancient sites in the Southwest from the air. His aerial survey, made with Anne Morrow Lindbergh, provided the first low-angle (oblique) views of the vast, interconnected, and ancient landscape. Ninety years later, noted aerial photographer Adriel Heisey rephotographed the ancient sites from the air, at the same oblique angles and at the same time of day. Thirty pairs of photographs—the Lindbergh negatives remastered and printed as duotones coupled with Heisey’s color images—make up this unique volume. Essays explore the Lindberghs’ roles, preservation archaeology, and the importance of protecting ancient sites.

Essays by Roy L. Flukinger and Joanna Turek This striking and well-reviewed photography book was heralded by ARTNews as “quirky and haunting, [it includes] images made with a a camera body and a bullet hole or a crack in the Berlin Wall as aperture...pinhole photography...seems to create the image, bypassing the artist and offering a strangely non-human view of the world.” The Los Angeles Times said: “These pictures...are not so much snapshots of reality but rather gauzy dreams.” Hardbound: $55.00   ISBN 978-0-89013-588-4 212 pages + gatefolds, 190 color photographs, 9 ½ x 11 ½

“[This] book offers evocative examples of the ways in which many Native cultures have long attributed the life-giving properties of water and the heavens to the blue and green stone. To express that relationship, their craftspeople combine turquoise with material from aquatic environments—shell, pearl, coral—and have traditionally included in their designs such water-related motifs as frogs, clouds and rain. “For Native peoples, turquoise also represents bounty from nature—whether that comes in the form of prosperity, vigor, healthy children, or abundant crops. It’s used for healing, as in the Diné culture; in ceremonies; and as a talisman for granting protection—which can even extend, as members of the Chacoan culture believed, into the afterlife. “Turquoise-, history-, and jewelry-lovers alike will want to add this book to their shelves.”—New Mexico Magazine

After being imprisoned in Afghanistan while on assignment for Life magazine in 1989, photojournalist Tony O’Brien sought solace and perspective at the Christ in the Desert Monastery near Abiquiu, New Mexico. He returned in 1994 to do a story and, in the process, became a practicing member of the community. During his yearlong residency, O’Brien was granted rare access to photograph the monastery and the daily activities and offices that have been kept in a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages.
