Material Shift is a showcase of work by Haudenosaunee artists who employ toys, food containers, bike reflectors, CD discs, and other unconventional materials to create traditional cultural objects and concepts and those who, conversely, use traditional materials such as ash splint, cornhusk, and antler to create popular (not necessarily functional) everyday items such as watches, daypacks, toothbrushes, and cell phones.
Exhibition sponsored in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
