Conversation with the artists.
I.M.N.D.N. — Native Arts for the 21st Century features the work of seven contemporary Native artists from the Pacific Northwest and Canada who are reinventing the concept of what contemporary Native art can be: Rick Bartow, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, Wendy Red Star, Nicholas Galanin, Peter Morin and Terrance Houle.
Guest curator Todd Clark writes, "I.M.N.D.N. will expand visitors horizons with works by seven contemporary Native artists from the Northwest and Canada who are reinventing the concept of what contemporary Native art is. The exhibition will explore Native mythologies, colonization, identity, and much more, through the smart and talented lens of Native artists in touch with their past, but firmly rooted in the present. With clear vision and lacking romantic overtures, these artists embody the idea of what it means to be a Native artist in the 21st century."
