Central Pivot Series – Volume 2
Nell Boeschenstein, Josh Garrett-Davis, Richard Saxton & Kirsten Stoltz (Eds.)
The second publication in the new pocket-sized Center Pivot Series from Richard Saxton’s alternative Colorado-based art and environmental collective, M12, and co-published by M12’s Last Chance Press and Jap Sam Books, An Equine Anthology explores the cultural history of the American horse. Interdisciplinary in approach, the series explores and connects the changing realities of rural landscapes and communities around the world, presenting an array of curated notes, documents and research ephemera combined with images, poetry and more formal visual and written works. Stitching together nonlinear histories, testimonies and interpretations of equine culture from the American Southwest and beyond, this anthology includes horsemeat recipes, rodeo histories, photographs and paintings of “the horse” by contemporary western artists. Contributors include noted animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin, M12 founder Richard Saxton, Wapke Fenstra from Myvillages, novelist Josh Garrett-Davis, native American artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and New Mexico–based photographer Clea G. Hall, among others.
