This Is Not A Silent Movie
Four Contemporary Alaska Native Artists
Curated by: Julie Decker, Ph.D., Chief Curator at the Anchorage Museum
Organized by The Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) in collaboration with the Anchorage Museum, This Is Not A Silent Movie: Four Contemporary Alaska Native Artists is centered around four acclaimed Alaska Native artists whose groundbreaking contemporary works question institutional methods of identifying Native heritage, examine their own mixed-race identities, and challenge perceptions and stereotypes about indigenous peoples.

Through the language of contemporary visual art, Nicholas Galanin, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Da-ka-xeen Mehner, and Susie Silook and seek new and distinct ways to speak of tradition and mediate the serious and sometimes ironic conditions of art, identity, and history in the late 20th and early 21st century. Though each artist’s work is rooted in a lifelong immersion in their respective Alaska Native craft traditions, their multi-media installations dissolve the boundaries between contemporary and traditional arts.

A great review from my Toronto exhibition Porcelain: Breaking Tradition
… Amongst old guards likeStephen Schofield and Colleen Wolstenholme are a bunch of newer names like Nicholas Galanin, Clint Neufeld, Brendan Tang, and David R. Harper who are increasingly defining the current generation of artists accomplishing things worth paying attention to. This exhibition provides a handy opportunity to catch up with them.
