Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley Opens to the Public

For the past three decades, David Bradley (Minnesota Chippewa, born 1954) has been a recognized voice from Indian Country, confronting through his art questions of identity, self-determination, and self-representation, as well as definitions of “traditional” Indian art. Drawing influence from diverse sources such as Santa Fe–style painting of the 1930s–40s, Renaissance art, pop culture, advertising, and film, Bradley’s work is at once serious and fun, historical and contemporary.
