Breaking the “Buckskin Ceiling”: Notes from a Day Devoted to Native Feminist Art

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Feminist Art Project’s annual “Crossroads” conference was a day of panels and performances centering queer, female, and Indigenous experiences.

[This spring, the Met announced that it would begin including Native American art in the American Art collection. Back in February, the Feminist Art Project presented its annual conference CROSSROADS: Art + Native Feminisms, a day of panels, performances, and dialogue. The event took place at the Museum for Arts and Design, a venue that embraces both craft and art — a categorical division that has historically been used to exclude artists of native ancestry from the mainstream art market. It was a day filled with ceremonies, deeply considered conversations, and moving performances, centering female, queer, and Indigenous experiences of the art world. Videos of the event have just been released and can be found here.]
