This event has ended.

The third exhibition in the Museum of Arts and Design’s groundbreaking series exploring contemporary Native North American art, "Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3" features approximately 70 artists from Northeastern and Southeastern United States and Canada, who represent a new generation of Native artists that utilize contemporary techniques, materials, aesthetics, and iconography in their art and design practice. Changing Hands 3 presents works created in the past seven years by Native artists in regions east of the Mississippi, including the Great Lakes, Woodlands, Northeast, Southeast, and up through the Canadian Sub Arctic, and recasts these works through the lens of contemporary art and design from around the globe. The exhibition transcends ethnographic and anthropological interpretations and challenges preconceived notions and stereotypes of indigenous art and artists to effect a reevaluation of contemporary Native art in an international arena.

"Changing Hands 3" features more than 130 works, ranging from site-specific installations and video to sculpture and jewelry—approximately 25 of which were designed and created specifically for the exhibition. Following its New York City premiere, the exhibition will travel to museums in the United States and Canada, including the Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, and the McMichael Collection in Ontario, Canada.
