Planning for an exhibit that examines the impact of French Orientalism depictions of the American west in art, literature, and popular culture.

The Denver Art Museum (DAM) will conduct curatorial planning and research for an exhibition, The Near East to the Far West: French Orientalism and the American Frontier (working title), to debut at the DAM in February 2023. This major traveling exhibition will include public programs, a catalog, and symposium, with input from multidisciplinary humanities scholars and Indigenous-, Muslim-, and Arab-American voices. Curated by the DAM’s associate curator of western American art Jennifer R. Henneman, Ph.D., the exhibition will reach wide audiences in Denver and additional venues in the United States. The Near East to the Far West explores how the style and substance of French Orientalism directly influenced representations of the people, wildlife, and landscapes of the American West in art, literature, and popular culture during the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, representations that continue to impact American attitudes towards history, identity, and place.
