Native American Art at Dartmouth
Highlights from the Hood Museum of Art
October 08, 2011, through March 11, 2012
The fourth in a series of exhibitions presenting the Hood’s extensive and varied holdings, Native American Art at Dartmouth surveys the breadth and depth of the permanent collection of indigenous art from North America, from the historic to the contemporary. Guest curators George Horse Capture, Joe Horse Capture, and Joseph Sanchez each contribute unique experience and perspective as well as a discerning eye in the presentation of the Hood’s varied holdings of Native art. This exhibition reveals the transformation of traditional iconography and showcases the use of non-Native media in contemporary artistic expression and visual narrative, including the work of former Dartmouth Artists-in-Residence Allan Houser, Fritz Scholder, T. C. Cannon, and Bob Haozous.
This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and was generously supported by Mary Alice Kean Raynolds and David R. W. Raynolds, Class of 1949, Susan Ferris, the William B. Jaffe and Evelyn A. Hall Fund, and the Eleanor Smith Fund. A multimedia component was made possible by a gift from Stephen A. Lister, Class of 1963.
Curated by Karen S. Miller, Assistant Curator for Special Projects / Joe Horse Capture, Associate Curator / Joseph Sanchez / George P. Horse Capture Sr.
