In November, Place, Nations, Generations, Beings: 200 Years of Indigenous North American Art will open at the Yale University Art Gallery. Three students curated the exhibition over the course of three years.
Student curator Katherine Nova McCleary stated, “This exhibition arose from generations of Indigenous students and affiliates calling on Yale University to accurately represent Indigenous art and peoples on campus. We were drawn to the project because of the opportunities to collaborate with Indigenous artists and scholars, grapple with Yale University’s settler colonial history, and more accurately represent Indigenous art in the Yale University Art Gallery space.” [Connecticut Magazine]
