Lakota, Dakota and Nakota artists are invited to submit artwork for the upcoming exhibit, The Horse Nation of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, reports the Native Sun News. Artwork can be in any form or medium.
The exhibit is being curated by the Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School in Pine Ridge, in partnership with Oglala Lakota artist Keith Brave Heart and the Oyáte of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Dakota, Lakota, Nakota). The exhibit will include original artwork alongside pieces from The Heritage Center and other collections.
The exhibit will premier at The Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School in September 2016. After that, it will travel to regional and national museums and galleries.
The exhibit will expand on the 2014 film We Are A Horse Nation made by Keith Brave Heart. It is intended to transform current curatorial processes from a top-down institution-led practice to a grassroots, community-influenced process.
