New Impressions: Experiments in Contemporary Native American Printmaking—Opening Reception
Fri, January 27, 2017, 5:00 pm–7:00 pm| Free
Organized by the International Print Center New York, New Impressions: Experiments in Contemporary Native American Printmaking showcases over forty prints by twelve contemporary Native American printmakers. Grounding their work in the images, textures, and experiences that shaped their lives, artists layer old and new, past and present to explore how the attitudes that informed the racial policies and practices of the last centuries continue to resonate in popular culture today.
Among the artists are Lynne Allen (Hunkpapa Lakota descent), Rick Bartow (Mad River Band of Wiyot Indians), Joe Feddersen (Confederated Tribes Of The Colville Reservation), John Hitchcock (Comanche/Kiowa), Brad Kahlhamer, Jason Lujan (Chiricahua Apache/Indigenous Mexican), Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (French-Cree/Shoshone/Salish), Jewel Shaw (Cree/Métis), Marie Watt (Seneca), Emmi Whitehorse (Navajo), and Melanie Yazzie (Navajo).
