Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now
August 29, 2019 – January 12, 2020
In this episode of the Nasher Museum Podcast, you’re listening to Jenny Tone Pah-Hote, a member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma. She is associate professor of American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of Crafting an Indigenous Nation: Kiowa Expressive Culture in the Progressive Era (UNC-Press, 2019). She sees the work of Oscar Howe as a fitting starting point in Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now, the first exhibition to chart the development of contemporary Indigenous art in the United States and Canada.
