Upcoming Exhibits

 


In Conversation: Will Wilson
July 11- September 15, 2024

 The exhibit features the work of contemporary Navajo (Diné) photographer Will Wilson, together in a dialogue with the work of Edward Curtis, best known for his portfolios of romanticized photos published as The North American Indian (1907-1930). Wilson’s Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange (CIPX) project, on the other hand, is dedicated to creating a contemporary vision of Native North America. Wilson employs a wet-plate collodion photographic technique, based on the nineteenth-century method, but he pushes the CIPX project into the contemporary with the inclusion of “Talking Tintypes,” which use augmented reality (AR) technology to bring photographs to life. For Wilson, CIPX is a way to create new conversations and emphasize exchange over problematic documentation.

In Conversation: Will Wilson is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
