University Museum at NMSU hosts “Live Long & Prosper: Sci-Fi Images in Contemporary Indigenous Art”

The University Museum at New Mexico State University is hosting the exhibition “Live Long & Prosper: Sci-Fi Images in Contemporary Indigenous Art.”

The works are on exhibition in Kent Hall located at 1280 East University Avenue, and will be on display until spring 2019.

“The indigenous artists represented in this exhibition are engaging with issues of cultural (mis)appropriation, indigenous space, contemporary narratives and the surviving/continuum of Indigenous culture through mixed media works,” said University Museum Curator Anna Strackman.

“This exhibition represents an acknowledgment of indigenous space – past, present and future.”

The exhibition features more than 40 works of art by contemporary indigenous artists including Debra Yepa-Pappan, Will Wilson, Suzanne Kite, Frank Buffalo Hyde, Sarah Sense, Neal Ambrose Smith, Hoka Skenadore, Nicholas Galanin, Andy Everson, Ryan Singer, Jamison Chas Banks, Sonny Assu, Skawennati and others.

Various paintings, video and photography are also featured.
