Read more information about the exhibit below from the Sicangu Lakota Artist and Curator, Dyani White Hawk:
"Historically, Native women used sinew, thread created from the backbone tendons of animals, to sew many things. This simple material metaphorically speaks to the strength of a people and very specifically to the strength of the women who used it to create a great deal of the legacy of historic Native arts. This exhibition, originally curated for Artistry in Bloomington in conjunction with the Guerilla Girls Twin Cities takeover, is coming to the Tweed Museum of Art. Sinew signals the greater importance of the Guerilla Girls movement to bring equal recognition to women and all underrepresented populations within the field of fine arts (and beyond). I am grateful for the opportunity to increase visibility and recognition of the strength, vigor, power, and resilience of Native American women and their important contributions.
The artists selected for this exhibition are some of the most accomplished female Native artists currently in the Twin Cities:
Carolyn Anderson, Julie Buffalohead, Andrea Carlson, Elizabeth Day, Heid Erdrich, Louise Erdrich, and Maggie Thompson
The exhibition is dedicated to the millions of Native women that, with immense strength, intelligence, and grace, humbly serve as the backbone of our nations."
