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.
