Shapeshifting: Transformations in Native American Art

Entering its final weeks at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, Shapeshifting: Transformations in Native American Art celebrates Native American ideas that have crossed time and space to be continuously refreshed with new concepts and expressions. Visitors are welcomed to experience this vitality through sculpture, paintings, ceramics, textiles, photographs, videos and monumental installations drawn from collections in the United States, Canada and Europe. Rarely seen historic pieces, shown alongside some of the finest contemporary works, demonstrate the diversity and continuity of Native American art and culture from 200 B.C.E. to the present.
