The OGs of Indigenous Fashion Panel Conversation
Sat, November 12, 2022, 3:00 pm–5:00 pm| Free
As part of the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts’ (MoCNA) ongoing programming for Art of Indigenous Fashion, we are presenting “The OGs of Indigenous Fashion,” a conversation about the progressive fashion scene surrounding the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe from the 1980s to the present. This event will be hosted by SITE Santa Fe.
Moderated by MoCNA guest curator and IAIA Assistant Professor of Art History Amber-Dawn Bear Robe (Siksika Nation), a panel featuring Project Runway finalist Patricia Michaels (Taos Pueblo) ’89, photorealistic beadwork phenom Marcus Amerman (Choctaw) ’84, and self-taught couturier Orlando Dugi (Diné) will discuss the early days of their careers. From traveling fashion shows to trendy nights at Heat: A Freak Boutique (one of the first Indigenous fashion boutiques on the Santa Fe Plaza) to visions for a fashionable future, these style icons have entertaining and thought-provoking stories of sartorial revolution, innovation, and experimentation to share.
Join us Saturday, November 12, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Marlene Nathan Meyerson Auditorium at SITE Santa Fe as we relive the late twentieth-century fashion chronicles of IAIA and Santa Fe. RSVP is required for this event—register today.
