Contemporary Native and Indigenous printmakers' diverse points of view and styles of artwork are revealed through their vibrant, recent works.

New traveling exhibition Metaphor, Myth, & Politics: Art by Native Printmakers presents captivating recent prints by Kenojuak Ashevak (Inuit), Marwin Begaye (Navajo), Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit/Aleut), Wendy Red Star (Crow), C. Maxx Stevens (Seminole/Muscogee), Melanie Yazzie (Diné [Navajo]), and 23 more Native and Indigenous printmakers from across the globe. Through their inventive and vibrant works, the artists in this exhibition reveal the diverse points of view and styles of art found in the world of contemporary Native printmaking.

Metaphor, Myth, & Politics: Art by Native Printmakers features 36 contemporary works on paper by 29 Native and Indigenous artists, all drawn from the C.N. Gorman Museum's collection (UC Davis). This area of the collections was established early in the museum’s history and has been expanding since then through the generosity of artists, as well as collectors and museum members. The museum has also been honored to serve as a repository for several large print portfolios, organized by master printmaker and UC Boulder Professor Melanie Yazzie (Diné [Navajo]).

The exhibition includes:

  • 36 framed prints ranging in size from 11" x 13" to 30" x 57"
  • An introduction and title panel
  • Labels for each print
  • Exhibition press kit with digital images
  • Resources and programming suggestions
