Explore the material histories and futures of several Indigenous handcraft techniques and aesthetics, including Southeastern river cane basket weaving, Algonquian birch bark biting, and porcupine quillwork in a colorful exhibition by multimedia artist-in-residence Jeffrey Gibson. Using Indigenous handcraft techniques learned over the course of his residency, multimedia artist Gibson created a new set of garments and helmets.
