Artwork reflecting the experiences of Indigenous communities can suggest nuanced strategies for confronting environmental exploitation and the legacies of colonialism. As the visibility of Indigenous art at international exhibitions and museums increases today, Art in America has published a special issue for October 2017 that assesses the magazine’s historical coverage of Native American art, examines the role of art institutions in creating spaces for Indigenous culture, and offers critical discussions of the work of both emerging and established Indigenous artists.
To mark the launch of this special issue of Art in America, Maria Hupfield and Jason Lujan, two artists who run the collective Native Art Department International, curate and screen a selection of recent works and discuss them with art historian Jessica L. Horton.
