Join the Block Museum for a conversation with four contemporary Native women artists exploring collaborative practices that unite artists, community and audience. From to participatory dance and collective narratives, to asynchronous poetry and public interventions each artist’s work upends the notion of art as a singular and finite production. Panelists include Rosy Simas (Seneca, choreographer and performer), Heid Erdrich(Turtle Mountain Chippewa, poet, writer and filmmaker), Andrea Carlson(Anishinaabe, visual artist), and Debra Yepa-Pappan (Jemez, digital multimedia).The artists will be joined in conversation by Kelly Wisecup, Associate Professor, Department of English and Bethany Hughes ( Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma), co-founder of the Colloquium on Indigeneity and Native American Studies.

The discussion will be preceded by a 4PM reception with the artists.

Presented in partnership with Northwestern’s Center for Native American and Indigenous Research.
