Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3 / Contemporary Native North American Art from the Northeast and Southeast

May 24–September 14, 2014

Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3 explores the work of contemporary artists of Native North American origin working in both traditional and new media, acknowledging their long and diverse cultural legacies while overtly and simultaneously exploring, and often confronting, the many ongoing issues inherent to their cultural heritage.

This exhibition is the culmination of a decade-long investigation and exploration into fine art created by Indigenous artists from North America, defined by their regional origins. This concluding exhibition of the three-part series presents new work by Native American, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists and designers from the Northeastern and Southeastern regions of the United States and Canada. Curated by Ellen Taubman, this Changing Hands presentation is the third in a series of exhibitions organized by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.

Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3 / Contemporary Native North American Art from the Northeast and Southeast was organized by the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibition catalogue is made possible in part with the support of the Smithsonian Institution’s Indigenous Contemporary Arts Program. Lead support for UMMA’s installation is provided by the University of Michigan Health System, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the University of Michigan Office of the Provost. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, Native American Studies Program, the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies, and the Doris Sloan Memorial Fund.
