Brave New Underworld
According to legend, the Diné (Navajo) underworld was a supercool place to live for the Holy People. The weather was perfect, food grew in loads, and the staples of Navajo art such as rug weaving, silversmithing, and basketry were cultivated and honed. In his Underworlderness exhibit, Navajo artist Tony Abeyta renders this world, fuses our current life, and draws in outer space and the cosmos. This trippy result will be portrayed on a gallery wall at the Heard Museum along with video documentation by Abeytas son, Gabriel.
