To support Peripheral Vision(s): Perspectives on the “Indian” Image by 19th-century Northern Plains Warrior-artists, Leonard Baskin, and Fritz Scholder, an exhibition that examines the complexities and contradictions embedded in the history of the “Indian” image. By bringing together the work of twentieth-century artists Leonard Baskin and Fritz Scholder with Lakota ledger drawings, the exhibition examines the complicated attempts artists have made to dislodge representations of Indigenous peoples in North America stuck in stereotype, cliché, and the trope of Manifest Destiny. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
