See ticket information below

Julie Buffalohead uses animals to convey social and political commentaries about gender, identity, and stereotypes. An enrolled citizen of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma, she grew up hearing stories in which animals played prominent roles as teachers and storytellers. In the new body of work for Eyes On, Buffalohead’s paintings explore the animals, duties, privileges, and taboos associated with Ponca clans.

Join Buffalohead, Dr. Ramona Beltran, and Rebecca Hart, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, in a panel discussion about the current exhibition. Dr. Denene DeQuintal, co-curator of Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead, will moderate the conversation to include Buffalohead’s oeuvre and the field of contemporary Indigenous art.
