VIRGIL ORTIZ'S FIRST CLAY FIGURE, created at age six, was a curvy woman clad in a man’s two-piece suit and bow tie. For his genre-bending work, the potter, provocateur, fashion designer, and futurist has been named the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture’s 2022 Native Treasures Living Treasure. In Virgil Ortiz: reVOlution (Museum of New Mexico Press), Charles S. King nestles Ortiz’s creativity in the context of his Cochiti Pueblo artistic lineage. The traditional vessels, outlandish figures, and postapocalyptic superheroes in this tome cement Ortiz’s rep as one of the most exciting artists working today.
