Shared Ideologies was originally scheduled to run from April 17 through August 2, 2020. In light of current conditions the Museum has postponed the exhibition. Projected dates for this exhibition are summer 2021.

Shared Ideologies, an exhibition of selected works by Native American artists from the 1970s to the present, will offer visitors an opportunity to engage in a sociopolitical dialogue about the space between history and memory. Paintings and works on paper by artists such as the late T.C. Cannon (Kiowa, 1946 – 1978), Tom Poolaw (Kiowa/Delaware, born 1959), Julie Buffalohead (Ponca, born 1972) and several others, transcend the two-dimensional artwork by their elders, that came to define Native American art. Shared Ideologies will ask us all to reflect upon the relationship between modernity and the Native American experience. Several works from our collection by T.C. Cannon will be on view at the Muscarelle for the first time.
