The Plains Indians
FRANCE
PARIS  •  Musée du quai Branly  •  7 April - 20 July 2014
 

More than 130 works of art from 57 European, Canadian, and American institutions and private collections are on view in a continuum from pre-contact to the present-day. Featured works include numbers of the great early Plains Indian robes, and other masterworks collected in the eighteenth century by European explorers and taken back to the continent never to return to America until now.

The show is organised by the musée du quai Branly, Paris in partnership with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, and in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. It is curated by Gaylord Torrence, one of America's leading scholars of Plains Indian art and the Fred and Virginia Merrill Senior Curator of American Indian Art at the Nelson-Atkins.

After Paris, the exhibition travels to the  Nelson-Atkins in Kansas City, Missouri  (19 September 2014 - 11 January 2015) and then to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (2 March 2015 - 10 May 2015).
