“California Indigenous Resilience Exhibition”
Jan 11, 2019 – Feb 10, 2019 @ Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica
The California Indigenous Resilience Exhibition showcases the wide ranging works of a new generation of California Indigenous Artists.
We are not static or stoic
We are contemporary artists
We are culture bearers
We are still here!!!
We are bringing a voice that as Indigenous artists, we should not be pigeonholed into stereotypical depictions of “Native American Art Trope”. As Culture Bearers, working with beads, shells and textiles or making baskets is how we pass on the knowledge from one generation to the next but we are also contemporary people living in 2019. This exhibit demonstrates a continually evolving exploration of the artist’s own relationship to cultural and familial heritage within the larger framework of historical and contemporary Indigenous identities.
Featuring works by
Kanyon “CoyoteWomman” Sayers-Roods
