Challenging Stereotypes of Native Americans
Savages and Princesses: The Persistence of Native American Stereotypes brings together twelve contemporary Native American visual artists who explore how to represent Native Americans authentically.
The images and styles in the exhibit are created from traditional, contemporary, and mass culture forms, replacing stereotypical images found in the current pop culture landscape. The exhibition’s artists use the unexpected—humor, emotion, or shock—to encourage viewers to question and challenge stereotypes, even unspoken, unacknowledged ones.
Special thanks to Humanities Tennessee for supporting this exhibit with a Sharp Grant.
Tickets available soon.
