Singing Our History: People and Places of the Red Lake Nation

Activity: Talk typesExhibit

Description

The 5,000 square feet exhibit explored how the Red Lake Nation has been and continued to be portrayed by artists and members of its communities through art and photography. The exhibit began in a co-taught graduate seminar with Howard Oransky, gallery director. I curated the exhibit with five graduate students in the Department of American Studies. It featured rare portraits of Red Lake people from the 1950s and 1960s, and contemporary artwork by Jonathan Thunder, Johnson Loud, Lucie Skeftje, and Patrick Desjarlait.
