Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America

May 18, 2019 - August 11, 2019

Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America is a traveling exhibition organized by the National Basketry Organization in partnership with the University of Missouri. Curated by Jo Stealey and Kristin Schwain, Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America visually chronicles the history of American basketry from its origins in Native American, immigrant, and slave communities to its presence within the contemporary fine art world. Divided into five sections—Cultural Origins, New Basketry, Living Traditions, Basket as Vessel, and Beyond the Basket—the baskets in this exhibition convey meaning and interpret American life through the artists’ choices of materials; the techniques and forms they select; and the colors, designs, patterns, and textures they employ.
