Cowboy reexamines the popular mythologies surrounding the image and concept of the cowboy.
Through the work of more than 25 artists representing African American, Latino, and Indigenous perspectives, the exhibition explores a wide array of themes, including the cowboy’s role in shaping our perception of masculinity and gender as well as long-held assumptions about cowboys’ relationship to land and the way these assumptions come into conflict with the lived experiences of contemporary cowboys.
Cowboy, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Denver, brings together approximately 70 cutting-edge contemporary artworks including new commissions.
