Adriana Greci Green
Adriana Greci Green, PhD, is curator of Indigenous Arts of the Americas at The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia, where she endeavors to reconnect artworks in the collection with their communities of origin and to uncover the Indigenous histories and experiences they reflect. A specialist in historic and contemporary Native American/First Nations arts, particularly of the Plains and Great Lakes regions, her own research examines the material expressions of sovereignty and treaties; women’s art production (quillwork, basketry, beadwork); and the contexts in which material culture, art, dress, and cultural performance are produced and circulated. She has been privileged to serve as an Advisor Board member for the acclaimed exhibition Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists, and was the lead curator for Native Artists of North America, the permanent reinstallation of the Native American collection at the Newark Museum of Art. Adriana is the guest programmer for the Indigenous Cinema of the Americas series.
