Changing Hands 2: Art Without Reservations

This major exhibition of Native artists includes Rick Bartow’s paintings, Preston Singletary’s glass sculpture, and Sonny Assu’s weaving, among work from more than a hundred others. The curators of this traveling show, Ellen Napiura Taubman, former head of the Department of Native American Art at Sotheby’s, and David Revere McFadden of New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, where the show originated, focus on presenting the work as part of the larger art world rather than as ethnological artifacts. For a long time, people referred to Indian art if they wanted to know more about, say, Indian spirituality. This show insists that Native art, like all other art, captures the world through the eyes of individuals who have unique experiences and identities—but are not necessarily defined by them.
