Speaking about Contemporary Art tends to exclude Indigenous/Native Artists in America. Often Native Artists are outliers, and their work is not seen as work about or within the context of current times (contemporary). So, when this work approaches the contemporary art world it breaks barriers and disrupts the norm, in turn Indigenizing the Contemporary Art structure. This lecture will explore this path and approaches of many current Indigenous Artists as well as the many concepts that tie the people back to the land we call our homelands, our sacred lands.

Jacob Meders is a member of the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria, an Artist and Assistant Professor at Arizona State University. 

The presentation “Indigenizing 21st Century Art: Land and Its People” is part of the WEAVING project and will be streamed on Zoom.  Weaving is supported in part by the California Arts Council a state agency

Sunday January 16 from 5-7pm on ZOOM only. Pre-registration is required. Tickets are available at on a sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds.
