“Toward an American Indian Abstract: The Art and Politics of Mary Sully” with Dr. Philip Deloria

Thursday, September 28, 2017, 3:30 - 5pm
Language & Communication Bldg (LNCO)

Between the late 1920s and mid 1940s, Dakota Sioux artist Mary Sully created a unique portfolio of art, completely unknown to contemporary American or American Indian art history.  Deeply engaged with modernist art and design, and with indigenous women's traditions of the Northern Plains, Sully's work is both aesthetically pleasing and conceptually challenging.  Offering close readings of several images, this talk will make the case for that Sully's art both belongs in, and alters, the canon of American and American Indian arts and culture of the twentieth century--and that its engagement with "culture and personality" anthropology helped produce a politics visible in both form and content.
