The Critics

“Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists” at the Minneapolis Institute of Arthas opened, and Alicia Eler writes, “One of the show’s strongest aspects is how it pairs contemporary artists alongside past makers. This brings out both the cultural importance of Native women being the ones who pass on the knowledge of making, and the ways that women’s ancestors are always present, whether they are living or deceased.” [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

Martha Schwendener on the MoMA exhibition “New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century,” which features work by artists such as Josh Kline, Sondra Perry, and Jacolby Satterwhite: “[It] ripples with the menacing effects and potential pitfalls of new technology, but it could use a larger dose of global thinking.” [New York Times]
