Special Exhibit Opening, Protection: Adaptation & Resistance

June 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Please join us for the opening reception of “Protection: Adaptation & Resistance,” curated by Asia Freeman from 4 – 6 PM on Saturday, June 11th.  The artist’s talk begins at 5 PM.

“In times of pandemic, climate crisis, and ongoing assaults on human rights, how are Indigenous Alaska artists today strengthening self and community, and guiding the next generation from surviving to thriving?  Protection: Adaptation and Resistance centers Indigenous ways of knowing. Working within intergenerational learning groups and as collaborators in vibrant community networks, Alaska’s Indigenous artists are invigorating traditional stories and proposing resilient new futures through design, tattoo, regalia, and graphic arts. Thirty artist projects presented in this exhibition elevate collaboration, allyship, and community as tools of resistance, adaptation, and cultural affirmation.”   Asia Freeman, Curator
