ARTIST TALK & DISCUSSION: Perspectives on Water

Register now to attend the November 29, conversation between five luminary, indigenous artists, activists, educators, and scholars.

Ceramic artist Courtney M. Leonard (Shinnecock) will discuss her work BREACH: Logbook 22 | CULL in conversation with Dr. Kate Beane (Executive Director of the Minnesota Museum of American Art and adjunct faculty in American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota) and Vicente Diaz (Chair of the Department of American Indian Studies, and Director of The Native Canoe Program, at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities). This conversation will be moderated by Dr. Roxanne Biidabinokwe Gould (professor emerita of Indigenous Education and Environmental Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth). 

Leonard’s body of work examines histories of water and seeks to activate conversations about industrial impacts on water, inter-species connections, climate change, and the shifting relationships between humans and water, as informed by the past. Presented in conversation with the exhibition, Ebb/Flow, currently on view at WAM. Q&A to follow.
