Native Portraiture: Power and Perception

Now through 2/10/2019 | Tacoma Art Museum

Museums South

Contemporary Native artists are actively deconstructing myths and preconceptions about Native people through their art. Many portraits of Indigenous people by non-Native artists romanticize, stereotype, or appropriate Native people and cultures. By countering these non-Native narratives with contemporary art by Native artists, the exhibition aims to give voice to Native people and communities to show their resiliency and power over the ways in which they are portrayed and perceived.
