Shared Ideologies, an exhibition of selected works by Native American artists from the 1970s to the present will offer visitors an opportunity to engage in a sociopolitical dialogue about the space between history and memory. Paintings and works on paper by artists such as the late T.C. Cannon (Kiowa, 1946 – 1978), Emmi Whitehorse (Navajo, born 1957), Cara Romero (Chemeheuvi, born 1977), Tom Poolaw (Kiowa/Delaware, born 1959), Julie Buffalohead (Ponca, born 1972) and several others, transcend the two-dimensional artwork by their elders that came to define Native American art. Shared Ideologies invites non-Native viewers into a dialogue with indigenous artists on themes that recenter master narratives of history and amplify both pan-Indian and tribally specific experiences while pondering a path to a shared future. A number of works from the Muscarelle Museum of Art’s Native American collection are being shown for the first time in this exhibition.
