Look, look, and look again; Ted Coe’s essential mantra. Asking you to look at an object multiple times generates questions, insights, and connections. Not being told what art means or its purpose invites you to draw upon your experiences and knowledge to find answers. Similar works, many from different cultures, have been placed together to encourage looking again to enable correlations between the objects.
This exhibition includes Indigenous art from North America and worldwide Indigenous cultures that share a commonality: use, materials, or aesthetics. Through asking questions such as: What does the media appear to be? Is it something worn or just a piece of art? Where was this piece made, and when? More details are found, and more for you to resonate with. But, it takes looking again, again, and again.
