About the 2019 IARC Speaker Series Rocking the Boat: Innovation as Tradition

Native artists are frequently categorized along a binary of traditional or non-traditional, sometimes rigidly so, defined not only by outside forces but also the communities and backgrounds from which they come. For cultures and communities to move forward, however, the maintenance of tradition hinges not only on the capacity to preserve the old, but also the ability to innovate and develop. From the introduction of silver by Navajo metalsmiths, and the development of Plains beadwork out of quillwork, to the creation of the first paintings by Pueblo women artists, traditions constantly evolve out of the unbreakable spirit of innovation, pulling the past into the present and driving the present into the future.This year’s speaker series explores the ways that artists create new traditions and ways of thinking vis-à-vis their roles as creatives. Throughout the series of intimate conversations, speakers will address the inseparable relationship between tradition and innovation.

All discussions will be held at the School for Advanced Research, 660 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM 87505 from 6:00-7:30pm. These events are free and open to the public. Advanced registration is encouraged. Register here or at the link above.
