Content and Analysis in Native Art

Moving Past Form and Function (Panel Discussion)




Event Description

The Indian Arts Research Center at the School for Advanced Research is pleased to announce its 2014 Speaker Series. This series was developed jointly between the School for Advanced Research and Institute of American Indian Arts and will take place at SAR and MoCNA. Speakers will delve into subjects surrounding art, interpretation, and the business of art. This panel features content and analysis in Native art. Many contemporary Native artists have expressed concern that their work is often examined in terms of materials, process, and function, while a more in-depth content analysis is overlooked. This panel discussion looks at the issue and its history. This panel features: Lara Evans, Cherokee Nation, art historian, art history faculty, Institute of American Indian Arts, Kade L. Twist, Cherokee Nation, multidisciplinary artist, Frank Buffalo Hyde, Nez Perce/Onondaga, painter and Carolyn Kastner, Curator, O'Keeffe Museum (moderator)
