Recent Publications: An Intro and an Essay from Hedlund

Retired Arizona State Museum curator of ethnology and Professor of Anthropology Ann Lane Hedlund’s essay about internationally acclaimed tapestry weaver Ibolya Hegyi (1953–2016) has been published in an illustrated bilingual volume, Szövott Idök/Woven TImes: Ibolya Hegyi (2017, Keresztény Múseum, Ildiko Dobranyi Foundation, Budapest, Hungary). From 2003 to 2008, Hedlund served as a member of Hegyi’s doctoral committee at the University of Applied Arts in Budapest. In addition, an introduction by Hedlund appears in Navajo Textiles: The Crane Collection at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (2017, University Press of Colorado), a catalogue organized and authored by Laurie D. Webster, Louise I. Stiver, D.Y. Begay and Lynda Teller Pete. In her introduction, “Consultations, Collaborations, and Curation by Navajo Weavers: A Celebration and History,” Hedlund reviews the past fifty years of Diné involvement in museum projects, points to areas needing more inclusiveness, and provides models for future collaborations.
