"Visual Sovereignty: Contemporary Native American Photography and the Politics of Imagination"

Saturday, March 06 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Salon F

"Visual Sovereignty: Contemporary Native American Photography
and The Politics of Imagination" brings together the
innovative visions of four Native American artists who employ
photography: Jolene K. Rickard, Erica Lord, Will Wilson, and
Kimowan Metchewais (McClain). Central to this panel is the
notion that indigenous imagination has functioned as a site of
resistance and critical cultural production. Each artist on the
panel has used photography to represent what it means to live in
contemporary Native North America through stories as diverse
and complex as the nations they originate from. The panel will
explore issues of indigenous representation, self-determination,
and visual sovereignty.
