Native American Narratives: Art, Culture, and Memory

Thu, Apr 22, 4:30–5:45 pm | Online 

How do works of art reflect the world view of their makers? What can they tell us about the connection between these works and the places where they are made? Join Dr. Johanna Minich, curator of VMFA’s Native American art collection, as she addresses these topics and more. For example, discover how Virgil Ortiz’s Aeronauts relate to Star Wars and the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and how Jaune Quick-to-See Smith’s War Torn Dress addresses the false narrative of a vanishing race —and hear about new gallery installations that juxtapose works by Euro-American and Indigenous artists to reveal differing cultural perspectives and long-suppressed voices in American history.
