New large-scale works by Julie Buffalohead premiere at the Minneapolis Institute of Art

The Minneapolis Institute of Art is presenting a solo exhibition of new work by St. Paul-based artist Julie Buffalohead. “Storytelling: Julie Buffalohead” unveils three large-scale diptychs—each approximately 12 feet tall by 4 1/2 feet long—and two smaller works, each providing a visual narrative told by animal characters with personhood, agency, and individuality. The exhibition opened November 23 in Gallery 255 and runs through September 6, 2020. Like all great storytellers, Buffalohead connects the mythical with the ordinary and the imaginary with the real, offering a space to which viewers can bring their own experiences. As the viewer enters her worlds, she coaxes them to discover additional layers of meaning—social, historical, political, personal—using metaphor, wisdom, and wit. The show was curated by Jill Ahlberg Yohe,
