This is Not A Silent Movie: Four Contemporary Alaska Native Artists

Thursday, May 1 - July 5, 2014
Paxson and Meloy Galleries

The exhibition title comes from author Sherman Alexie, who encourages audiences to shift their notions of Native peoples away from narrow, stereotypical views. He states, “This is not a silent movie, our voices will save our lives.”

Featured are works by Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Susie Silook,
Da-ka-xeen Mehner and Nicholas Galanin, four Alaska Native artists who create contemporary installation-based work that explores gender, memory, race, nationality and cultural heritage.

Funding for this exhibition is provided by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). This exhibition was organized by the Craft & Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, California in partnership with the Anchorage Museum, Alaska.


Docent tours available.  For more information call 243.2019.
