Marking the first major museum survey to explore the practices of Indigenous photographers working today, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art will present "Speaking with Light: Contemporary Indigenous Photography." Contemporary photography-based works will spotlight the dynamic ways in which more than 30 Indigenous artists have leveraged their lenses over the past three decades to reclaim representation and affirm their existence, perspectives, and trauma.

Among many milestone works, this sweeping multimedia exhibition will feature acclaimed prints by Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie, Wendy Red Star, and Nicholas Galanin; site-responsive installations by Kapulani Landgraf and Jolene Rickard; and a new large-scale photo weaving by Sarah Sense, which has been commissioned by the Carter.

"Speaking With Light" showcases the evolution of cultural affirmation and institutional critique in photography through the prolific output of young and mid-career artists such as Jeremy Dennis, Sky Hopinka, Dylan McLaughlin, and Cara Romero, along with their generational forebearers, including Shelley Niro, Tom Jones, and Zig Jackson.

Brought together, these photographs, videos, three-dimensional works, and digital activations forge a mosaic investigation into identity, resistance, and belonging. Reflecting a wide spectrum of distinct cultures and creative practices, the exhibition is an outgrowth of the Carter’s broader collecting initiative dedicated to amplifying Indigenous artists’ contributions to the history of photography and American visual identity.
