Horizons: Weaving Between the Lines with Diné Textiles

Opening Summer 2023
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture


About the Exhibition

The horizon line is both a point of connection—between sky and earth—and a separation of space. Horizons: Weaving Between the Lines with Diné Textiles explores the connections between weaving and photography as modes of engagement with place in the American Southwest. By situating these two media in conversation, this exhibition examines each as a way of seeing and knowing Dinétah, the Navajo homeland. Building upon previous and ongoing collaborations with the Navajo Nation, this landmark exhibition brings land into view as an “object” or site of inquiry, both historically and into the present.
