The large-scale exhibition will open on level 3 of the Hamilton Building on September 10, 2017, and will expand to level 4 on December 3, 2017.
Stampede will create an opportunity for visitors to discover and consider the role animals play through themes such as personal connections with animals, how animal materials have been used in art, how animals are used to tell stories or represent political ideas, and how artists use animals in imaginative ways. It will include visitor favorites such as a Nick Cave Soundsuit, four-faced Hamat'sa Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, paintings by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.
Visitors will be able to try their hand at drawing in the gallery and spend time closely looking at smaller objects in a “cabinet of curiosities.” Stampede also will feature an interactive space where visitors can learn about the creative process behind the Never Alone video game created by Native North Alaskan storytellers. In conjunction with Stampede, the studio space on level one of the Hamilton Building will become the 3-D Studio, with hands-on artmaking activities related to animals.
Stampede: Animals in Art is organized by the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition curation has been led by John Lukavic, associate curator of Native Arts, and Florence Müller, Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art and curator of fashion at the DAM.
Opens: 10 AM
