Screen-Printing Demonstration with Jamison Chās Banks
Sat, November 18, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm
Jamison Chās Banks (Seneca Cayuga Nation of Oklahoma) ’12 will lead a free, open-to-the-public demonstration at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA), held in the Education Classroom or the North Courtyard, weather permitting. Banks will discuss his work, the process of screen-printing, and the relationship of his work to the work of Jean LaMarr (Susanville Indian Rancheria), which is on exhibit in The Art of Jean LaMarr at MoCNA through January 7, 2024. Banks is currently the lead instructor in the Printmaking Studio for the Studio Arts Department at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) and has been with IAIA since 2012, where he earned his BFA. Banks is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates films, paintings, performances, and installations. His works often explore the history of war and territorial expansion, both literal and psychological. Banks appropriates and alters symbols employed in propaganda and popular culture and redeploys them in contexts that subvert their original meanings. He usually begins with an area of investigation that spawns a series of interrelated artworks in different media.
