Indigenous Futurisms: Transcending Past/Present/Future
This VR environment is a virtual replication of the physical exhibition "Indigenous Futurisms: Transcending Past/Present/Future" exhibition currently on view at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts. The exhibition highlights artworks that present the future from a Native perspective, and illustrates the use of cosmology and science as part of tribal oral history and ways of life. The works in this exhibition create awareness about how cultural knowledge and tribal philosophies are connected to the universe, science and the future. Indigenous Futurisms was co-curated by IAIA art history faculty Dr. Suzanne Fricke, Chelsea Herr (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma), and IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts chief curator Dr. Manuela Well-Off-Man.
