The Lyrical Artwork of Jim Denomie

The Lyrical Artwork of Jim Denomie

This exhibition surveys the artist’s singular vision and signature style over the second half of the artist’s career, from 2007 to 2022.

Jim Denomie (Ojibwe, Lac Courte Oreilles Band, 1955–2022) drew inspiration from lived experiences, pop culture, Anishinaabe traditions, and American histories to tell compelling narratives that depict his experiences of being Native in America. Despite the emotional weight of his subject matter, the artist’s dry wit opened space for necessary conversations about the legacies of colonization and the nature of humanity. The exhibition examines Denomie’s creative process, tracing his ability to transform inspiration into monumental artworks.
