Created in response to the 500th anniversary of Columbus landing in America, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith’s painting challenges traditional celebrations of the so-called discovery of America and the white privilege they signify. // In her collage, images related to the conquest of Native Americans appear alongside clippings that describe the bleak facts of life on reservations. Above, an array of cheap toys, souvenirs, and sports memorabilia speaks to the commodification of Native American identity. The work ironically offers these objects to white people in exchange for the return of stolen lands. As a part of the artist’s Quincentenary Non-Celebration series, Trade stands as a symbol of Native American protest and revisionist history. // Director @erik_neil is on the road and visited the work which is currently on loan to @crystalbridgesmuseum for their exhibition “Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now.” In return Crystal Bridges generously loaned us Andy Warhol’s “Hammer and Sickle” which is currently on view in the Chrysler’s contemporary galleries. // Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (American, b. 1940) Trade (Gifts for Trading Land with White People) 1992 Oil and mixed media on canvas 93.2 Museum purchase in memory of Trinkett Clark, Curator of American and Contemporary Art, 1989-96 #indigenouspeoplesday #columbusday #chryslermuseum #crystalbridges #americanart

We had a fantastic night with @vikmuniz. This was his first time seeing William Bouguereau’s “Orestes Pursued by the Furies.” (!!!) Vik created his photograph after our painting during his 2006 Pictures of Junk series. Before his talk, Vik, Director Erik Neil, and Curators Lloyd DeWitt and Seth Feman created an inspired tableau vivant. 🙌 #ChryslerMuniz #VikMuniz #tableauvivant
