Modern Indian art

Cornell displays ‘Discovering American Indian Art'There's David Bradley's “American Gothic/Pueblo,” a humorous look at what's American.

“Twentieth-century artists of American Indian extraction have steadily moved into the spotlight in the international art world,” said Weislogel, who, with a background in Italian art, first experienced American Indian art in curating this show.

“It's possible for American Indian artists to be counted in the global sense; they now participate on the same playing field as artists around the world and aren't pigeonholed according to their cultural origin,” he said.
