Heard Museum Announces Newest Exhibition
By Claire Natale - Tuesday Apr 25, 2023
The Heard Museum is proud to partner with artist Brenda Mallory on its newest exhibition, “The North Star Changes,” featuring sculptures made using reclaimed and found materials, some taking the form of large-scale installations.
This exhibit opened at the Heard Museum on April 7 and will run through Feb. 5, 2024. This exhibition is made possible by The Molly Blank Fund, the Robert Lehman Foundation, Lois and John Rogers, and Trudy and Steven Wiesenberger. Additional supporters include the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the City of Phoenix Office Arts & Culture

“We are honored to welcome Brenda Mallory to the Heard Museum,” said David M. Roche, Dickey Family Director and Heard Museum CEO. “This exhibition represents our ongoing commitment to presenting the work of Indian women artists. Ms. Mallory stands out in the contemporary art movement for her innovating use of found materials and her thought provoking exploration of cross-cultural currents.”

Mallory is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, and currently resides in Portland. She grew up in Oklahoma where she was awarded grants by the Oregon Arts Commission, Ford Family Foundation, and the Regional Arts & Culture Council. Her sculptural art is comprised of a variety of materials, including cloth, fibers, beeswax and found objects which are then joined together using crude hardware.

“My work addresses the idea of interference and disruption in long-established systems of nature and human cultures,” said Mallory. “This exhibition was inspired by the fact that, even though we perceive the north star as permanent, the position has been inhabited by different stars over the course of thousands of years. The idea of things changing has always been in my work.”
