Summary note
Perspectives and Parallels: Expanding Interpretive Foundations was conceived as the first programmatic steps to address the history of underrepresented indigenous populations in the artworld and to create a platform upon which Native Perspectives on the Tweed Museum Collection could be expressed according to the voices and vision of Native artists, scholars and curators. The catalog details three exhibitions curated by emerging Native American artists and scholars, along with the Symposium which wrapped up this three year project.
"This catalogue is printed in an edition of 1,250 as a culminating document of the Perspectives and Parallels: Expanding Interpretive Foundations with American Indian Curators and Writers program that included the exhibitions: Mni Sota: Reflections of Time and Place (May 29-August 26, 2012), curated by Dyani Whitehawk Polk; Encoded: Traditional Patterns/A contemporary Response (September 18, 2012-March 18, 2013), curated by John Hitchcock; Blood Memoirs: Exploring Individuality, Memory and Culture through Portraiture (September 13, 2013-March 17, 2014) curated by Amber-Dawn Bear Robe; and a collaborative symposium (March 4, 2014) with UMD Department of American Indian Studies, involving UMD Associate Professor Jill Doerfler, the project curators, and writers Joanna Bigfeather and Associate Professor University of California Santa Cruz Amy Lonetree"--Title page verso.
