Larger Than Memory

Contemporary Art from Indigenous North America

Opening September 4, 2020
On Sept. 4, The Heard Museum opens Larger Than Memory: Contemporary Art from Indigenous North America, which was originally scheduled to open May 1.

This original exhibition, curated by Diana Pardue and Erin Joyce, centers around works produced in the 21st century, highlighting the significant contribution indigenous artists have made and continue to make to broader culture from 2000-2020.

Indigenous artists from North America represent some of the most exciting and engaging work of the 21st century. The exhibition features more than 40 works by 22 contemporary artists working across the United States and Canada in a variety of mediums including Cannupa Hanska Luger, recipient of the inaugural Burke Prize in 2019 through the Museum of Art and Design in New York and the 2020 Creative Capital Award.

Larger Than Memory also features longtime Heard Museum collaborator Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith, who has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and is the recipient of many prestigious awards and grants including the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters Grant and the 2020 US Artists Fellowship.
