    Our People, Our Land, Our Images

    July 15 - October 22, 2017

    We need more opportunities to view indigenous peoples through their own eyes. This important exhibition offers a first-person photographic account by artists from Canada, Iraq, New Zealand, Peru, and the U.S.

    Distinctive in its historical reach, Our People, Our Land, Our Images includes works by newly discovered 19th-century trailblazers, members of the next generation of emerging photographers, and well-established contemporary artists. These include B.A. Haldane (Tsimshian) and Jennie Ross Cobb (Cherokee).

    Styles on view vary from straightforward, traditional documentary photographs to aesthetically altered images combining overlays and collage, but each image, paired with the artist's statement, conveys connections to the artist's land, tradition, and community.

    This exhibition of 51 works by 26 indigenous photographers was curated by Veronica Passalacqua, curator at the C.N. Gorman Museum, and circulated by ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance and The National Endowment for the Arts.
