Native Languages in Visual Art at the Map(ing) Exhibit

Map(ing), a free biennial art event that showcases Native languages and cultures, will take place Jan 8-14, 2011 and will include a public forum on Jan 12 at 6–7:30 PM Seven Native American artists – Ahkima Honyumptewa, Dallin Maybee, Eliza Narajano Morse, Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie, Marilou Schultz, Randy Kemp, and Wanesia Misquadace – worked with graduate printmaking students in Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. The buzzword ‘Language’ is often thrown around in general discussion of identity, but as you can see some works do in fact invoke language. One piece by Dallin Maybee features an upside down teepee with symbols reminiscent of winter counts, with ledger-drawing-like figures amid a sea of Chinese characters.

Works went on display at the Working Proof Exhibition at the Night Gallery in Tempe Marketplace (hours: Tuesday-Sunday, 6-9 PM) today, Jan 6, and will remain there until the 30th. A silent auction and fundraiser will be held on the 14th, at 7-10 PM; two prints from each artist goes to funding future Map(ing) events.

  2. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

  3. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
