IAIA 2021 Spring Senior Graduating Exhibition “A Retrospective of Change”

A Retrospective of Change

A Retrospective of Change

A Retrospective of Change, the IAIA 2021 Spring Senior Graduating Exhibition, is available to view virtually. Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and closure of the IAIA campus, A Retrospective of Change is the third virtual exhibition presenting graduating seniors’ work in the digitally-rendered IAIA Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery. Utilizing the skills of faculty, staff, and students from across the campus to transform physical works into digital formats, graduating seniors are able to present their final projects in virtual reality, adding to the next generation of contemporary Native voices in art and broadening what it means to exhibit art.

A Retrospective of Change is a culmination of the students’ final semester, where they worked closely with advisors, faculty, staff, and colleagues to create and articulate their conceptually driven body of artwork. This exhibition represents a capstone to their course of study, as well as their academic experience.

For more information, please contact Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery Director Mattie Reynolds (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) at (505) 428-5813 or at
