IAIA MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY NATIVE ARTS (MOCNA)

Action Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art

1940s to 1970s

Text by Lara Evans, Ryan S. Flahive, Shanna Ketchum-Heap of Birds, Tatiana Lomahaftewa-Singer, Stephen Wall, Manuela Well-Off-Man.

Action Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art

The first appraisal of modern Native American abstraction, merging abstract expressionism, color field and hard-edge painting with Native American art

The volume features paintings and works on paper from the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts’ (MoCNA) collection, created in the 1960s and 1970s. These artists challenged stereotypical expectations of Indian art by experimenting with New York School abstraction combined with art influences from their own cultural heritage. This departure, supported by the groundbreaking art education philosophy at IAIA, revolutionized the Native American art world.

Artists include: Ray Aguilar, Ralph Aragon, Sammy Begay, Larry (Littlebird) Bird, Earl Biss, Bennet Brien, Bennie Buffalo, George Burdeau, T.C. Cannon, Art Chischilly, Joseph L. Concha, Larry Desjarlais, Joe Dudley, Earl Eder, Mary Eder, Kirby Feathers, Anita (Luttrell) Fields, Phyllis Fife, Herman Fragua, Henry (Hank) Gobin, John Gritts, Harvey Herman, Patrick Swazo Hinds, John Hoover, Michael Jenkins, Peter B. Jones, Ralph Robert Kniffen, Delores Lee, Alice Loiselle, Linda Lomaheftawa, Linda Lucero, Edna Massey and more.


"Northwest Design" (1966) by Henry "Hank" Delano Gobin (Tulalip/Snohomish, 1941–2013), is reproduced from 'Action Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art.'

November is Native American Heritage Month!

November is Native American Heritage Month!

"Untitled (Squares)" (1968), by Cherokee artist Lloyd Henri "Kiva" New, is reproduced from Action Abstraction Redefined: Modern Native Art, the first major publication analyzing modern Native American art inspired by Abstract Expressionism, Color Field and Hard–edge painting from the mid–1940s through the 1970s. Published by the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, this 148-page hardcover features work by more than thirty artists of many different tribes. "Indian art can be projected into the future," New said in 1962, "by a willingness to consider the evolution of new forms, the adoption of new technological methods, and the fact that new incentives for expression by the individual must fill the void of inertia in Indian groups or tribal forces, in the rapidly changing Indian world." continue to blog
