Request to book Frank S. Matsura: Portraits from the Borderland. Frank Matsura was an early 20th century photographer who moved from Japan to America. These photographs capture moments that reveal Syilx (Okanogan) communities effectively adapting to a changing time–a message distinct from many of Matsura’s contemporaries, whose work reinforced erroneous beliefs that Indigenous peoples would soon disappear.

The exhibition’s four themes consider various ways in which Matsura’s artistic legacy challenges colonial stereotypes, unsettles power dynamics in image-making, and fills important gaps in art historical and regional narratives.

Several open dates are available from January 2024 to Winter of 2026.

On View at the @westmorelandmuseum in Greensburg, PA.

Action/Abstraction Redefined is the first major traveling exhibition that analyzes modern Native American art from the mid-1940s through the 1970s that was inspired by Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, and Hard-edge painting and created by leading artists, including George Morrison, Fritz Scholder, and T.C. Cannon.

The exhibition will run until May 28, 2023 before it travels to the @stlartmuseum , St. Louis, MO for its June 23, 2023 opening.
