Art in Conversation: The Transformation of Indigenous Cultural Practices by Colonial Powers

/ Virtual Programs

Mairin Odle, Ph.D., Assistant Professor for the Department of American Studies from the University of Alabama, highlights cross-cultural engagements in Indigenous culture and the role of narrative and memory-making in colonial projects (as well as in Indigenous resistance to those projects). This talk references our exhibition Voices So True: New Native American Art from the Clyde Oyster Bequest to focus on the ways images of Nativeness were adopted and transformed by American artists and society.
