Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: In the Footsteps of My Ancestors
March 9, 2019 – June 30, 2019
Jaune Quick-to-See Smith is one of the U.S.’s finest Indigenous talents. Smith is a legendary artist with extraordinary aesthetic, intellectual, and curatorial achievements to her credit. The exhibition examines themes that perennially recur in her work, including conflict, compassion, peace, the cycle of life, irony, and identity. Smith has always operated on a cusp—culturally, temporally, aesthetically, and from a gender perspective—which gives her work an attention-getting vitality, originality, and relevance. Her role in the shift toward deepening respect for Native American contemporary art in its own right has been significant. She describes herself as a “cultural arts worker.” Smith also has credits as a curator, writer, speaker, and leader in the arts.
