Vantage Point: The Contemporary Native Art Collection

September 25, 2010 – August 7, 2011

Museum: American Indian Museum

Location: W. Richard West Jr. Contemporary Arts/3M Gallery, 3rd Level

This exhibition highlights the museum's young but vital collection of contemporary art, with 31 significant works by 25 artists ranging from paintings, drawings, and photography to video projection and mixed-media installation. These complex and richly layered works speak to the concerns and experiences of Native people today and are organized around the following four themes: personal memory and identity, history and the contemporary urban experience, landscape and place, and cultural memory and persistence. The artists featured include James Lavadour (Walla Walla), Truman Lowe (Ho-Chunk), Alan Michelson (Mohawk), and Marie Watt (Seneca), Kent Monkman (Cree), and Emmi Whitehorse (Navajo).
