"Faces from the Interior: The North American Portraits of Karl Bodmer", 10/2/2021 - 4/17/2022, Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, NE
"Faces from the Interior is the first Museum project to focus exclusively on Karl Bodmer’s watercolor portraits of Native Americans. The exhibition features sixty-four recently-conserved watercolors, drawn entirely from Joslyn’s renowned Maximilian-Bodmer collection. This includes portraits of individuals from Omaha, Yankton, Lakota, Mandan, Hidatsa, Assiniboine, and Blackfoot tribes, among many Native communities encountered by Maximilian and Bodmer during their travels along the Missouri River from Saint Louis to Fort McKenzie, in present-day Montana. The installation will be complemented by a selection of Bodmer’s Missouri River landscapes and Native American village sites, placing viewers within the larger context of life on the High Plains.
Faces from the Interior was organized by the Margre H. Durham Center for Western Studies, Joslyn Art Museum, in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In Spring 2021, the exhibition will be one of the first rotating installations to complement The Met’s new installation of The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection of Native American Art. The exhibition will return to Omaha in Fall 2021 and travel to the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, TX during the Fall of 2022."
