About the Exhibition
VISUAL VOICES: Contemporary Chickasaw Art touring exhibition is moving and passionate, surprising in its modernity, but ancient at its core. Nearly sixty artworks of present-day Chickasaw painters, potters, sculptors, metalsmiths and weavers convey a beautiful and compelling contemporary visual story.
From oil and watercolor to textiles and metals, glass, bronze and other materials, the artworks of fifteen featured Chickasaw artists in this exhibition are unique, intrinsically Southeastern and distinctive in design among today’s contemporary tribal artists. They are rising contemporary voices on an aesthetic landscape of twenty-first century American Indian art.
VISUAL VOICES offers abstract, experimental, celebratory, mysterious, thought provoking or critical works confirming a strong continuation of contemporary Chickasaw art practices.
