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

Mar 23, 2019

The School for Advanced Research is proud to present Rocking the Boat: Innovation as Tradition, a four-part speaker series highlighting the Indian Arts Research Center’s former Native artist fellows and extended community (April 3, 2019 – April 24, 2019).  

Native artists are often categorized along a binary of traditional or non-traditional. These rigid definitions come from outside forces and from within artists’ home communities. In this year’s IARC speaker series, artists explore how honoring tradition requires the capacity to preserve the old, and the ability to innovate and integrate new creativity 

IARC acting director, Elysia Poon, notes, “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 have evolved out of an unbreakable spirit of innovation. Artists pull the past into the present and drive the present into the future.”   

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