Exhibitions : The Shape Of Things: New Approaches To Indigenous Abstraction
Jul 19th, 2018


Missoula Art Museum
335 North Pattee Missoula, MT


Over the past two years, MAM, MATRIX Press, and the University of Montana School of Art have been working with four artists—Molly Murphy Adams (Oglala Lakota), John Hitchcock (Comanche), Sara Siestreem (Hanis Coos/Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Tribes), and Duane Slick (Meskwaki/Nebraska Ho-Chunk)—who were each invited to participate in printmaking residencies generously supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Each artist visited Missoula for one week to create new work at MATRIX Press, interact with the community, and offer a public lecture about their artistic practice. Artists weren’t directed to make work in any given style, just to follow their interests with the understanding that the results would be presented as part of this exhibition exploring abstraction.
