In Conversation: Historical Practices and Contemporary Native Art

Many of today’s Native artists draw on historical tribal practices for their contemporary art making. In this Conversation, U-M PhD candidate Kristine Ronan will highlight the intersection between the historical and the contemporary in an array of objects from the touring exhibition Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3. Comparing objects from the exhibition to some of UMMA’s permanent collections, we will especially consider how relating the past to the present might serve as political commentary for a number of today’s Native artists.

This program is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please register to secure your place by emailing umma-program-registration@umich.edu.
