This is the first iteration of our newest lecture series surrounding our current exhibition, Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass.
Exhibition designer Caroline Lajoie discusses the exhibition’s design, walking viewers through her inspiration and process. The presentation is followed by a Q&A session moderated by Lillia McEnaney.
Breaking the boundaries of what is deemed traditional Indigenous art, Museum of Indian Arts & Culture’s new exhibition, Clearly Indigenous, examines how Native artists reinterpret cultural narratives and designs in new mediums. The two-pronged exhibition focuses on how Native artists have melded ancestral ways with new methods and materials in glass, while concurrently examining the historical narrative of how glass art came to Indian Country.
