Hear My Voice: Native American Art of the Past and Present at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

0.00

Art is a crucial tool with which Native Americans maintain a connection with their past while successfully maintaining tribal identity on the present day. Through the sections, artist + community, artist + nature, artist + outsiders,this exhibition illustrates that Native American artistic production speaks of a shared knowledge and shared history while also being incredible diverse. 

The design of the exhibition moves away from the room to room gallery experience, opening up the space and allowing for larger view-sheds across the gallery-— emphasizing connections between objects, artists, and themes. The use of translucent fabric scrim panels encourages these connections and a dialogue of past and present. A presence of what is to come or what has come before will always be felt by the viewer.
