Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead <p><em>Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead</em> will showcase new work by the Minnesota-based artist, who is a citizen of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma. Buffalohead uses metaphors, iconography, and storytelling narratives in her artwork to describe emotional and subversive American Indian cultural experiences, and often analyzes the commercialization of American Indian cultures.</p> <p>Buffalohead frequently includes animals as subjects, and her eclectic palette and whimsical subjects evoke a childlike innocence. While she works in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking, drawing, illustration, bookmaking, and sculpture, this exhibition will feature a new series of works on canvas that explore her own life experiences, as well as ancestral knowledge.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Eyes On: Shimabuku <p><em>Eyes On: Shimabuku</em> will showcase a video by Japan-based artist Shimabuku titled Do snow monkeys remember snow mountains? This video illustrates the adaptation of a group of Japanese snow monkeys living in a Texas desert sanctuary since they were brought to the U.S. in 1972.</p> <p>Initially featured at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, this film analyzes the displacement of the monkeys from their natural habitat in the snow-capped mountains of Japan. The film also symbolically explores human migration and reconnection with environment through genetic memory and ancestral history.</p> <p>This installation has a thematic relationship to Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead, as well as Stampede: Animals in Art. Buffalohead and Shimabuku use the depiction of animals as a vehicle to explore both familiar and unfamiliar narratives related to their personal heritage and the world around them.</p> <p>This installation is curated by Rebecca Hart, Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.</p> <p><em>Photo courtesy of the artist and Freedman Fitzpatrick, Los Angeles©Shimabuku</em></p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Stampede: Animals in Art <p>See how animals have captivated artists throughout history in Stampede: Animals in Art. This cross-departmental exhibition will bring together more than 300 objects from the Denver Art Museum’s collection to explore the presence of animals in art throughout centuries and across cultures.</p> <p>The large-scale exhibition will open on level 3 of the Hamilton Building on September 10, 2017, and will expand to level 4 on December 3, 2017.</p> <p>Stampede will create an opportunity for visitors to discover and consider the role animals play through themes such as personal connections with animals, how animal materials have been used in art, how animals are used to tell stories or represent political ideas, and how artists use animals in imaginative ways. It will include visitor favorites such as a Nick Cave Soundsuit, four-faced Hamat'sa Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, paintings by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.</p> <p>Visitors will be able to try their hand at drawing in the gallery and spend time closely looking at smaller objects in a “cabinet of curiosities.” Stampede also will feature an interactive space where visitors can learn about the creative process behind the Never Alone video game created by Native North Alaskan storytellers. In conjunction with Stampede, the studio space on level one of the Hamilton Building will become the 3-D Studio, with hands-on artmaking activities related to animals.</p> <p>Stampede: Animals in Art is organized by the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition curation has been led by John Lukavic, associate curator of Native Arts, and Florence Müller, Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and curator of fashion at the DAM.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze <p><em>Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze</em> will feature nearly 30 paintings by Denver-born artist Jordan Casteel, who is now based in Harlem, New York. This presentation represents Casteel’s first major museum exhibition, and provides audiences with a first look at new work by one of the most acclaimed emerging artists working today.</p> <p>The exhibition will bring together a body of work made from 2014 to 2018, with new paintings that reveal Casteel’s evolving practice and a shift in subject matter ranging from cityscapes and subway scenes to women and local business owners. Casteel’s approach to selecting subjects involves walking around her neighborhood and taking photographs. By transforming these photographs into larger-than-life portraits with subtle shifts in light, bold colors, and gestural brushwork, Casteel reveals individuals and atmospheres that often go unnoticed.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
