Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now

October 6, 2018, through January 7, 2019

For generations, Native American artists have been considered outside the “mainstream” contemporary art world. A new exhibition, organized by Crystal Bridges, will begin to remedy that division. Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now is the first exhibition to chart a history of contemporary Indigenous art from the United States and Canada. The exhibition presents some 75 works of art by the most important Native American artists spanning the 1950s to today—such as Kay WalkingStick, Carl Beam, Fritz Scholder, Edgar Heap of Birds, and Kent Monkman—and features works in a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, sound, installation, and performance art.

This unprecedented exhibition offers Indigenous perspectives on land and history and takes on the politics surrounding the way Native peoples have been represented, challenging historical assumptions and biases about Indigenous art. Ultimately Art for a New Understandingunveils the power and influence of Native American artists, upends what has, until now, been the dominant story about contemporary art, and enriches our understanding of American art.


Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now is organized by Crystal Bridges, and curated by independent curator Candice Hopkins (Tlingit, citizen of Carcross/Tagish First Nation), Crystal Bridges Curator of American Art, Mindy Besaw, and Manuela Well-Off-Man, Chief Curator at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition will be on view at Crystal Bridges in the fall of 2018 before traveling to major museums in the United States and Europe. The exhibition will be accompanied by a multi-author catalog that will offer a comprehensive consideration of contemporary Native North American art and feature new essays by art historians, cultural critics, and artists as well as excerpts from key texts from the last 50 years of scholarship and criticism.

Admission sponsored by The Christy and John Mack Foundation.  There is no fee to visit this exhibition.

Sponsored by Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, National Endowment for the Arts, ConAgra Brands, Arkansas Humanities Council, Becky and Bob Alexander, Frank and Pat Bailey, Randy and Valorie Lawson / Lawco Energy Group, and The Sotheby’s Prize.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.

The Sotheby’s Prize jury believes this exhibition will be a turning point in our understanding of this field.

Holly Wilson (Delaware Nation/Cherokee) is a contemporary multi-media artist. She uses the figure as a vehicle to lure the viewer into her stories. Story by story we learn more about the artist, about ourselves, about the ties that bind and the threads that weave together stories to reveal a larger cultural narrative and identity. She tells stories that are sacred and precious, personal and universal, powerful and at times volatile.

The exhibition features new and recent multi-media works in sculpture, installation, and photography.

The accompanying catalog includes essays by Jennifer C. Vigil and heather ahtone and illustrates all the works in the exhibition.
