9 Art Events to Attend in New York City This Week

Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, a member of the Salish and Kootenai nation, will have eight recent works on view in this exhibition, her first with Garth Greenan Gallery. Drawing inspiration from her travels around the Pacific Northwest and California with her father, a horse trader, Smith illuminates the relationship between indigenous culture and contemporary American life in her work. Four mixed-media paintings come from a series Smith began in the early ’90s that recalls her father’s stories of older Native Americans who survived colonial violence, while sculptural work framed by a canoe refers to the ongoing debates about climate change that persist today.
