Explore art created by contemporary, indigenous artists around the United States and Canada in a diverse exhibit at the Heard Museum.

The “Larger Than Memory: Contemporary Art From Indigenous North America” exhibit will be on display through Jan. 3 at the museum at 2301 N. Central Ave. You can see artwork in a variety of modalities and mediums in this collection centered around works produced in the 21st century. Indigenous artists in North America have created artwork that addresses key conversations occurring around the globe. Their pieces express a continuum of their cultural heritages while also sparking conversations with and interpreting the precept of art history.

There are more than 40 works of art that 24 artists created in 13,000 square feet of gallery space. Expect to see art on paper, video, sculptural installation, painting, photography and other mediums. This exhibition comes with an illustrated catalogue with contributions that indigenous scholars have made available at the Heard Museum Shop.
