Lecture The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky
1:00 – 2:00 PM / Spencer Museum of Art, 309 Auditorium
Gaylord Torrence, one of the nation's leading scholars of Plains Indian art and the Fred and Virginia Merrill Senior Curator of American Indian Art at the Nelson-Atkins discusses the groundbreaking exhibition The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky on view at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art through January 11, 2015. The exhibition brings together works found in European and North American collections, from pre-contact to contemporary, ranging from a 2,000-year-old Human Effigy stone pipe to 18th-century painted robes to a 2011 beaded adaptation of designer shoes. Together they reveal the accomplishments of Plains Indian artists, not only as the makers of objects that sustain tradition and embody change, but as the bearers of individual creative expression and innovation. From his initial vision for the project to highlights from the 140 masterworks on view, Torrence shares the creative and collaborative process of organizing the exhibiton, the research and participants involved, and discoveries made along the way. The exhibition is curated by Torrence and organized by Museé du quai Branly in Paris in collaboration with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
