This exhibition presents the works of contemporary American Indian artists who identify as feminists and whose practices address intersectional issues connected to notions of Native feminisms. These issues include matrilineal traditions, indigenous futurisms, ecocriticism, land and water rights, survivance, and the fight for Native sovereignty — ongoing topics of concern, as evinced by Allen's early texts. These artists, moreover, hail from a variety of indigenous communities, and identify as Diné/Navajo, Apsáalooke, Ojibwe, and Spokane. Some of the works included manifest a strategically pan-Indian visual rhetoric, while others deal with specific issues unique to the community of the particular artist. Displaying both approaches, this show reveals the aesthetic richness and political power of Native feminist art practices today. Curator: Elizabeth S. Hawley. Opening Reception: Wed, Jan 13, 6-8pm.
