About Visual Voices

Visual Voices: Contemporary Chickasaw Art showcases the diversity of expression in contemporary Chickasaw art across different media and multiple perspectives. The artworks analyze the complex relationship between contemporary Chickasaw life and rich tribal history and culture. Each of the fifteen emerging and established artists demonstrates a personal approach. Many of the artists are inspired by traditional Chickasaw elements of design and render them in contemporary materials and aesthetics to create an innovative, thought-provoking visual language. Others investigate tribal stories, belief systems, or family histories and traditions, and how these relate to present-day Chickasaw life. With more than 45 artworks reflecting a wide variety of themes, techniques and methods, the exhibition finds balance in the artists’ strong connection to tribal identity as well as his or her distinctly individual and cultural roots.
