‘Perspectives & Parallels’ culminates with discussion

Tweed Museum of Art will host a culminating project symposium 4-8 p.m. Tuesday to wrap up its Perspectives & Parallels project.

This project, funded through a National Endowment for the Arts Access to Artistic Excellence grant, was developed to engage curators and writers of contemporary Native American art in museum programming.

The symposium begins at 4 p.m. with light refreshments and an introduction by Museum Director Ken Bloom, followed by a group discussion led by the project’s participants. Participants include John Hitchcock, who guest-curated the exhibition Encoded: Traditional Patterns A Contemporary Response, Amber-Dawn Bear Robe, who guest-curated the current exhibition Blood Memoirs: Exploring Individuality, Memory, and Culture through Portraiture, and Dyani White Hawk, who curated the exhibition Mni Sota.

Amy Lonetree and Joanna Bigfeather also participate as writers about exhibitions. Jill Doerfler, Professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth, moderates the discussion.

Following this conversation, a panel discussion also led by project participants will begin at 6 p.m. in Montague Hall 70.

A reception at Tweed follows 7-8 p.m.
