SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO / UNITED STATES
SUMMER 2017 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
ST. HELENA, CA STUDIOS
Frank Buffalo Hyde (Nez Perce/Onondaga Nation, Beaver Clan) was born and presently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He uses American icons to explore the miscommunication of cultures. Hyde often turns stereotypical imagery of the "Indian" on its ear with his own brand of satire. Over the past decade he has had numerous sold out shows and his work has been collected by many American museum and public art collections. In 2013, a suite of thirteen paintings titled SKNDNS- Native Americans on Film was purchased by The National Museum of the American Indian. Buffalo Hyde has shown internationally, including a summer and fall 2012 exhibition of contemporary art in Russia; and in galleries in Japan, Chicago, New York and San Francisco. He has been an artist-in-residence and exhibited at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe and at the University of Virginia's Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection. His most recent solo exhibition, I-Witness Culture is at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, February 2017 to January 2018. Buffalo Hyde attended IAIA in 1993 to 95 and the Santa Fe Art Institute in 1996.
