Native Artists of North America
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES  •  Newark Museum  •  22 October 2016 - 1 January 2018
 
This autumn, the Newark Museum unveils its newly redesigned and reinterpreted Native American galleries. Featuring more than 100 rarely exhibited objects from throughout the United States and Canada, Native Artists of North America showcases a selection of works from the permanent collection, dating from the early 19th century to the present, including many objects never before exhibited.
 
This permanent installation celebrates the great diversity of styles, media and creativity of Native artists and places them in the broader context of American art. Among the works on view are expertly woven Pomo baskets, exquisite hand-made items of dress from across the continent, and Southwestern pottery and textiles.  Other highlights include works by the Haida master carver Charles Edenshaw and Pueblo painters Fred Kabotie, Tonita Peña and Awa Tsireh. Additional works by contemporary Native American artists are installed in adjacent galleries, including recent acquisitions by Jeffrey Gibson and Preston Singletary.

The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread
NEWARK, DELAWARE, UNITED STATES  •  Old College Gallery  •  31 August - 9 December 2016
 
The exhibition presents the Ese’Eja, one of the world’s last remaining foraging societies, whose way of life is today threatened by mining and logging activities surrounding their lands and communities in southeastern Peru.

Through daguerreotypes and photographs by UD faculty member Jon Cox and Andrew Bale (UD MFA 2005), and a selection of artifacts for healing and everyday use that attest to the nation’s traditions, knowledge and respect for their unique – and endangered – environment, The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon brings into focus a unique and fascinating community endangered by the encroachment of the modern world.
