New Acquisitions: 2011–2017
New Acquisitions: 2011–2017 highlights newly acquired work over the past six years from MoCNA’s Permanent Collection and demonstrates the museum’s commitment to collect works that are visionary and a testament to IAIA’s innovative spirit. The selected artworks complement each other through aesthetic, color, and form, but also share an expansive vision collectively. The selections include various types of media such as mix media collage, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. The exhibition features works by Brandee Caoba (Ohkay Owingeh descent), Jim Denomie (Ojibway), John Hagen (Unungan (Aleut)/Inupiaq), Merritt Johnson (Mowhawk and Blackfoot descent), Tom Jones (Hochunk), Tony Lee (Navajo), Monty Little (Diné), Alex Pena (Comanche/Non-Native), and Jaune Quick-To-See-Smith (French-Cree/Shoshone/Salish).
