Photographing Native America, featuring works by Zig Jackson

Collection Spotlight

July 17, 2018 Through December 16, 2018

In the John and Norah Warbeke Gallery

This spotlight features works by photographer and member of the Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation, Zig Jackson (b. 1957) in conversation with early 20th-century photographs by Edward Curtis (1868-1952) and Adam Clark Vroman (1856-1914). In his work, Jackson challenges deeply ingrained popular concepts of Native Americans and encourages viewers to embrace the narratives that people tell us about themselves.
