About the Exhibition

Presented in collaboration with Pomo cultural leaders and curators, Jules Tavernier and the Elem Pomo brings together more than fifty works to tell the story of Jules Tavernier (1844–1889) and his extraordinary career and encounters with Native peoples, with a focus on his rediscovered masterwork Dance in a Subterranean Roundhouse at Clear Lake, California (1878).

Major works by Tavernier will be shown alongside nineteenth to twenty-first century Pomo baskets and regalia celebrating the enduring artistry of Pomo basket weavers and regalia makers from several generations, revealing the resiliency of Pomo peoples and highlighting their continued cultural presence today.
