Native Fashion Now
Visitors are invited to explore the rich and surprising realm of contemporary Native fashion. The exhibition begins with the collaborations of Cherokee designer Lloyd Kiva New and Hopi jeweler Charles Loloma in the 1960s and ‘70s which set the stage for work being created by Native artists today. From the sleek black-and-white designs of Virgil Ortiz to the outrageous beaded boots by Jamie Okuma, Native artists are inspired by the past but making pieces for the here and now. The exhibition is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA.
