Dana Claxton at the Metropolitan Museum

Thursday, March 19, 2015

The Metropolitan Museum of Art: The exhibition Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky unites Plains Indian masterworks found in European and North American collections, from pre-contact to contemporary, ranging from a two-thousand-year-old human-effigy stone pipe to contemporary works including Rattle, a video-installation piece by Dana Claxton. Works of art collected centuries ago by French traders and travelers will be seen together with those acquired by Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition of 1804–06, along with objects from the early reservation period and recent works created in dialogue with traditional forms and ideas.
