Navajo Textiles in the 21st Century

  • St. Louis Art Museum (map)

From the 19th to the 21st century, from trading posts to fine art museums and galleries, the masterworks of Navajo weaving have transcended time and space. Fourth Generation Navajo weaver, Melissa S. Cody will address how the Navajo weavings of today are much like those from the past in the ways they mirror the social and economic history of the Navajo people. Through sharing her own art practice, Cody will discuss how Navajo weaving has continued to evolve through exploration and experimentation with “lazy-line” patterns, color, and design, thereby creating new works that have surpassed the definition of “decorative arts.”

Supported in part by a gift from the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.
