Contemporary Indigenous Arts: Rising Voices, Vital Traditions
In the face of historical exclusions from the institutions and spaces of fine art, the field of contemporary Indigenous art has witnessed an unprecedented expansion over the last five years into the most prestigious exhibitions, museum collections, and global corners of the art world. Yet Indigenous artists still must navigate the seeming contradictions between tradition and contemporaneity alongside community responsibilities and the fraught outsider expectations of authenticity that accompany new and eager audiences and markets. This lecture provide an overview of the issues and developments in contemporary Indigenous art, focusing on how working artists navigate such concerns in diverse practices; recent breakthroughs and prominent recent inclusions in exhibitions like the Whitney Biennial and Venice Biennale; the founding of new galleries and institutions dedicated to Indigenous art, such as the Forge Project; and the intersections of contemporary art with the history, formation, and ongoing relevance of traditional Indigenous art markets and fairs in sites such as Santa Fe and Phoenix.
