The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis, IN is home to one of the best, most comprehensive collections of Native contemporary art in the world. For the past 20-plus years, the Eiteljorg’s Contemporary Art Fellowship program has provided an insightful examination of contemporary Native art and impacted the broader art community. As part of the Eiteljorg’s ongoing commitment to contemporary Native art, the latest round of the Fellowship features the powerful work of five compelling Native artists from the United States and Canada: Rita Letendre (Abenaki), Hannah Claus (Bay of Quinte Mohawk), Demian DinéYazhi´ (Diné), Matthew Alan Kirk (Navajo) and Dyani White Hawk and (Sičáŋğu Lakota)
“The line that separates contemporary Native art from customary Native art does not exist,” says Jennifer Complo McNutt, Eiteljorg curator of contemporary art. “The work of contemporary Native artists today is a continuum of expression. It does not solely exist in the Native world or mainstream art community.”
Blurring the Line is on view at the Eiteljorg Museum (500 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204) from November 16, 2019 – February 2, 2020.
