Beyond Hollywood is a museum exhibit being hosted at the Valencian Museum of Ethnology in Valencia, Spain.  This exhibit is a joint exhibition developed by the WSU Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology and the Valencian Museum of Ethnology.  This exhibition juxtaposes generally Hollywood-created stereotypical ideas about American Indian peoples with understandings that Native people hold about themselves. This confrontation of perspectives goes far beyond the myths and stereotypes through which images of the American Indian are often constructed. It also poses questions about ethnic identity, cultural diversity, cultural representation, and self-determination. Through the art and artifacts of various American Indian tribes, with a special emphasis on the Anishinaabeg of the Great Lakes region, the exhibition tells the story of both cultural diversity and shared beliefs across the continent, of continued traditions and continual change, and of contemporary Native resistance and creativity.

 

Beyone Hollywood is on exhibit from June 28-December 2, 2018 in Valencia, Spain. For hours please check the website of the Valencian Museum of Ethnology. Please note this exhibit is only happening in Valencia, and not on the WSU Campus.
