Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Bentonville, AR 72712-4947)
Mindy Besaw (Project Director: January 2018 to present)
Native North America: Indigenous Art from the 1950s to Now

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the amount of $400,000 to support the implementation of the exhibition Native North America: Indigenous Art from the 1950s to Now (working title), the first exhibition to chart a history of contemporary Indigenous art from the United States and Canada. By examining the practices and perspectives of the most influential Native artists and their important contributions in conversation with the well-known history of American artistic practice, Native North America places Indigenous art within in rightful context. Themes will include the politics of representation and self-representation as well as Indigenous perspectives of land and history, thereby expanding understanding of American art.
