Apocalypse then and now
An Evening Redness in the West, one of four exhibits opening at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts on Friday, Aug. 21, reimagines the apocalypse from a contemporary Native perspective and includes works by Rose B. Simpson, Norman Akers, Andrea Carlson, and others. In addition, MoCNA presents Visions and Visionaries, the inaugural show of its new Kieve Family Gallery, dedicated to showing work by artists from the museum’s permanent collection, many of whom, such as Alfred Young Man and T.C. Cannon, are alumni of the Institute of American Indian Arts. More than 50 years on, IAIA continues to expand its programs and opportunities for students.
