Turner Carroll will honor one of New Mexico’s most influential artists — Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, in conjunction with her wildly anticipated retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Turner Carroll presents Quick-to-See Smith’s works on paper, and headlines with with her remarkable painting, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy.”
Born in 1940 at the St. Ignatius Indian Mission on the Flathead Reservation, Montana, Jaune has created elaborate, abstract paintings and prints rich in symbolism since the 1970s. Her work often combines imagery from the commercial lexicon with traditional native imagery and personal narratives. Smith’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in Quito, Ecuador, Museum of Mankind in Vienna, Austria, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C.; Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, and others.
