Unbroken: Native American Ceramics, Sculpture, and Design draws from the Hood Museum’s permanent collections to create dialogue between historical, modern, and contemporary works made by Indigenous North American artists. Curated by Dillen Peace ’19 (Diné) and Sháńdíín Brown ’20 (Diné), Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative (DAMLI) Native American art interns, Unbroken explores themes of continuity, innovation, and Indigenous knowledges across time, and calls attention to the stylistic decisions made by artists and makers working across multiple mediums.
This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth, and was generously supported by Hugh J. Freund, Class of 1967.
