Makers of the Now: Nicholas Galanin


Thursday, December 6, 2018
7:00 – 8:30 pm

Part of a five-lecture series presenting different windows into contemporary indigenous artistic practice, via Native American and First Nations artists living and working throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.

Galanin will reflect on the issues critical to his practice as a contemporary maker working within multiple fine art mediums as well as music: considerations of time as a continuum; spatial dynamics; and his contribution towards perpetuating the Tlingit/Unangax culture.

Galanin’s monograph, Nicholas Galanin: Let Them Enter Dancing and Showing Their Faces is available for purchase in the Museum Store.
