Upcoming symposium: Essentially Indigenous

Essentially Indigenous?: Contemporary Native Arts Symposium
Thursday, May 5, and Friday, May 6, 2011
National Museum of the American Indian in New York
George Gustav Heye Center; Diker Pavilion
One Bowling Green, New York, NY

This is a free event. I can't go (someone has to create the art and curate the shows, right?), but if you're in the New York area - check out it. If anyone wants to share feedback about the symposium, I would be very grateful! Session topics include:
  • Essential Images: On the Critical Production and Reception of Contemporary Native Art
  • Essential Place: The Relationship between Native Art and Place
  • Blood Memory: Indigenous Genealogies and Imagined Truths
  • Indigenous Aesthetic Paradigms: Community and the Artist.
Registration info.
Schedule online.
