Indigenous Artists in Collaboration: A Conversation
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 4:30PM, FREE

Join the Block Museum for a conversation with four contemporary Native artists exploring collaborative practices that unite artists, community and audience. From participatory dance and collective narratives, to asynchronous poetry and public interventions each artist’s work upends the notion of art as a singular and finite product. Panelists include Rosy Simas (Seneca, choreographer and performer), Heid Erdrich (Turtle Mountain Chippewa, poet, writer and filmmaker),Andrea Carlson (Anishinaabe, visual artist), and Debra Yepa-Pappan (Jemez, digital multimedia). The artists will be joined in conversation by Kelly Wisecup, associate professor in the Department of English and Bethany Hughes (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma), co-founder of the Colloquium on Indigeneity and Native American Studies.

The discussion will be preceded by a 4PM reception with the artists.
