Tune in on Wednesday, December 2nd for part two of the Anne Ray intern takeover of our SAR Artists Live series. Join us as we jump behind-the-scenes of our internship program and learn more about Emily Santhanam.
Emily is a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and prior to coming to the IARC, she worked as a curator at the Chickasaw Nation Cultural Center. Santhanam earned her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Stanford University in 2016 and is primarily interested in curatorial work. She has stated that, “to support Native American arts is to support the communities behind them, the histories that enrich them, and the future lives that will be inspired by them.”
Login to your Instagram account and go to SAR’s Instagram page at 4 p.m. on December 2nd to watch and chat with Emily live!
About the series:
Ever wonder what kind of equipment, materials, techniques, and space artists use to create their work? SAR’s new live series on Instagram takes you into the studio with leading Native American artists to find out this and more. Go behind-the-scenes and into the workspace of the many talented artists SAR has partnered with, both past and present. During this live event, participants can gain insight into the artist’s process, find out where they draw inspiration, and learn how current events are impacting their work and changing their outlook. Hosts Elysia Poon, director of SAR’s Indian Arts Research Center, and Felicia Garcia, curator of education, will interview the artists in a dynamic and informal dialogue guided in part by questions submitted throughout the conversation from the audience via the Instagram Live chat feature.
