IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts Opens New Exhibitions
On February 16th, the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts held an opening reception for the following exhibitions:
 
Rolande Souliere: Form and Content
Working across painting, sculpture, photography, collage and recently screen printing, Rolande Souilere's(Michipicoten First Nation) art practice is primarily installation that combines abstraction with organic forms, the hand crafted and the assisted readymade.  Through the use of Ojibway, Cree, and Inuit syllabics, Souliere utilizes aspects of this writing system to engage in ideas about space, color, form, symbolism, surface movement, and language. Her new wall painting is an exploration into the parallels and the multifaceted ways in which simple geometric building blocks such as chevrons, circles, and rectangles have a profound affinity with Indigenous language and culture and abstraction in western art.
 
Without Boundaries: Visual Conversations
Without Boundaries is an exhibition that grew out of a series of Curated Conversations led by guest curator and
artist Sonya Kelliher-Combs (Iñupiaq/Athabaskan) at the Anchorage Museum, Anchorage, Alaska. The exhibition features Indigenous leaders in the arts and the work of contemporary artists whose work encourages social action. The artworks explore issues from decolonization to climate change. Kelliher-Combs has brought together artists from North America and Greenland to create a shared visual narrative and a shared conversation about ideas and issues that separate and bind.
 
Art & Activism: Selections from The Harjo Family Collection
This exhibition highlights works from the Harjo Family Collection. Suzan Harjo recently donated this major art collection to the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, and it contains about sixty artworks. Many of these works were purchased by or gifted to Suzan Shown Harjo (Cheyenne/Hodulgee Muscogee), an important American Indian activist, lobbyist, policy maker, and 2011 recipient of an IAIA Honorary Doctorate. All of the artists represented are significant to the field of Contemporary Native American Art.
 
Breaking Ground: IAIA 2018 BFA Exhibition
The Institute of America Indian Art's 2018 BFA thesis exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts showcases the diversity of work being created by the artists trained at IAIA. The selected works by these artists are grounded in ideas of personal, political, social, cultural, or historical import and an earnest exploration of the artists' chosen media. This combination produces works that present each artist's unique voice while highlighting some shared concerns.
