Unsettled is a sweeping presentation of contemporary art by more than 75 artists living or working in the Greater West. The exhibition’s fertile terrain is a “super region” that runs from the top of Alaska, through the North American West, and all the way down to Central America, and the work created here explores the geography of vast frontiers, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, and the inevitable conflicts that arise when these factors coexist.
