SAR Artists Live with Jami Powell will take place Wednesday, April 28th at 4 p.m. MDT.
During the month of April on the SAR Instagram, the 2020-2021 Anne Ray Interns, Emily Santhanam (Chickasaw) and Sháńdíín Brown (Diné), will be exploring the vibrant sphere of Indigenous fashion, highlighting the perspectives artists and curators in the field. Join us on April 28th as we chat with Jami Powell, the Hood Museum’s first associate curator of Native American art as well as lecturer in Native American Studies at Dartmouth College. Powell is a citizen of the Osage Nation and has a PhD in anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Powell’s research examines the representations of Indigenous peoples in museums as well as the interventions contemporary Indigenous artists make through creative acts of self-representation. Powell is currently working on a book manuscript titled Stitching an Osage Future: Aesthetic Resistance and Self-Representation. She also leads the annual Indigenous Peoples’ Month Fashion Show at Dartmouth College.

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.
