Apsáalooke Women and Warriors: Opening Reception
Thursday, March 12
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society
5701 S. Woodlawn Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60637
This exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Field Museum and the Apsáalooke community, highlights the art and culture of the Apsáalooke people, also known as the Crow. Two tipis—on the terrace and east lawn—transform the Neubauer Collegium into a gathering place for celebrating Apsáalooke traditions and beliefs. The gallery, reimagined as the inside of a tipi, evokes an intimate domestic space, with an installation conceived by Apsáalooke scholar Nina Sanders. Visitors will encounter historical objects including a sacred war shield, a war shirt, and horse regalia; new works by Del Curfman, Allen Knows His Gun, Ben Pease, and Kevin Red Star; beadwork by Birdie Real Bird, Karis Jackson, and Elias Not Afraid; and textiles designed by Bethany Yellowtail.
Curated by Nina Sanders in collaboration with Dieter Roelstraete.
