Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Speakers on the Arts
Jeanette Nicewinter, PhD


Mid-century modern art is exemplified by an abstract aesthetic that emphasizes the materiality of the work. Numerous Native American artists, such as Kay Walkingstick, engaged with the rhetoric surrounding modern art but their self-identity as a Native American has overshadowed their contribution to modern art. This talk will examine the way mid-century Native American modern artists participated in the modern art scene.
