Gallery Conversation » Will Wilson and Edward Curtis

Join Curator Mindy Besaw for an opening talk in the new focus exhibition In Conversation: Will Wilson and Edward Curtis. In this exhibition, contemporary photographer Will Wilson (Diné) presents an authentic, twenty-first century depiction of Indigenous culture through his photography, even allowing his subjects to choose the pose, clothing, props, and context of each photograph. This exhibition also features photographs from Edward Curtis, who traveled throughout the western United States between 1907 and 1930 to photograph traditions and cultures of Native American peoples. The photographs of Wilson and Curtis in conversation offer a chance to see different depictions of Native peoples and to think critically about how they have been portrayed in photography over the past century.

Space is limited; please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early.
