This spring Rainmaker Gallery showcases a new generation of Native American artists. These young creatives bring an explosive visual mixture of techniques, experimentation and individual perspectives that shatter clichéd perceptions of 'Indian' art and life.
The Young Americans presents photography, printmaking and painting by 16 artists from 20 tribal nations. Many of these artists are drawn from the alumni of the Institute of American Indian Arts, a well-spring of creative innovation since the 1960's. Building on the legacy of those groundbreaking indigenous artists who came before them, these young Americans are unapologetically forward looking and simultaneously self-reflective.
Collectively these artists, embrace influences from traditional Native American design and 18th-century portraiture to contemporary street art and Japanese anime. The contemporary expressions included in this exhibition are a snapshot of the vast Native American talent very much alive and making a mark in the world.
Educated, articulate and fearless, this generation of Native artists epitomises the exciting and fast-changing scene of indigenous art. They offer a refreshing perspective on what it means to grow up in the United States today. These are The Young Americans - indigenous, dynamic and indomitable.
