Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map
[New York City, NY] “Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map” at the Whitney Museum of American Art brings together nearly five decades of Smith’s drawings, prints, paintings, and sculptures in the largest and most comprehensive showing of her career to date.
As a citizen of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, Smith’s work reflects her belief that her “life’s work involves examining contemporary life in America and interpreting it through Native ideology.”
The Whitney adds, “The retrospective will offer new frameworks in which to consider contemporary Native American art and show how Smith has led and initiated some of the most pressing dialogues around land, racism, and cultural preservation—issues at the forefront of contemporary life and art today.”
24HourNation had the opportunity to view this exhibition in person. We highly recommend it.
“Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map” is on view through Aug. 13, 2023.
In addition to its daytime operating hours, the Whitney Museum of American Art is open until 10 p.m. on Fridays. In fact, museum admission is Pay-What-You-Wish on Fridays, from 7 – 10 p.m. This is ideal for those who are unable (or unwilling) to visit museums by day. Every Museum in America could be open late at least once a month.
