AL·TER·NA·TIVE

AL·TER·NA·TIVE is a solo exhibition featuring a collection of paintings and sculptures from artist Frank Buffalo Hyde (Onondaga/Niimíipuu (Nez Perce). Vivid and pop-culture saturated, his work reflects on the commodification of American Indian culture, and the assertive roles for Native American identity in the contemporary world. Self-proclaimed as consciously, culturally non-transactional, Frank’s work comments on cultural appropriation and societal disruption through his uncompromising satirical eye. A defiant take on the skewed perceptions of Native American art and culture tourism, Frank’s allegorical work is geared towards Native people first and disarms through banter while making references to antiquated technology in conversation with the metaverse; and provides a layered commentary on the collective unconscious of the 21st century.
