Event Description

This exhibition in the upstairs gallery, concurrently with Air, Land, Sea downstairs, features works on paper by contemporary Native American artists. The project was originally organized by  the Institute of American Indian Arts to celebrate 2012 as the official year of Russian-American friendship. The American Consulate sponsored the show at the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts in Russia. Each piece was chosen to reflect the complexity and richness of modern Native life. The artists reflect the diversity in tribal affiliation, geographic location, gender and age, and share an intricate vision of life lived in different worlds, from the long traditions of their specific tribes to the politics and pop of the world at large. The continued vitality and relevance of Native artists to the art world in general speaks to the strength of Native cultures, not only for their ability to survive but to thrive, able to create and recreate in the face of many challenges.
