Sharing History for the Future: A Convening with Jaune Quick-to-See Smith | Part 2 of 5

Nov 30, 2023

In celebration of Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith: Memory Map, a major retrospective surveying five decades of the groundbreaking artist’s work, this convening gathers an intergenerational group of Native American artists, curators, and scholars for conversations about the ongoing and overarching concerns in Smith’s work, including land, sovereignty, and Indigenous knowledge and identity. The program takes inspiration from Smith’s work as an artist and as an educator and curator by bringing together many communities that she has been in dialogue with throughout her career.
