Action/Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art, 1945-1975

Comprising 52 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by 32 artists, Action/Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art, 1945–1975 is the first major traveling exhibition to explore the innovation and experimentation of modern Native American art. It features work across media from advanced artists such as T. C. Cannon, George Morrison, and Fritz Scholder, and illustrates how their careers overlapped movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Pattern and Decoration, Color Field, and Hard-Edge Painting. These artists explored new forms of artistic expression by challenging stereotypical expectations of American Indians.
