About the Native Artist Series

Initiated in 2020, the KAM Native Artist series connects contemporary Native artists and their practice to KAM exhibitions, collections, and research and dovetails with curricula for undergraduate and graduate students across campus. The series offers public lectures, performances, and sustain engagement with students through studio visits, classroom workshops, and informal conversations at Native American House, American Indian Studies, and the museum. The series is designed for critical reflection and will present a vibrant and complex set of discussions around contemporary Native American visual culture.
