The Art of Indigenous Resistance”

The Art of Indigenous Resistance is a traveling exhibition of work by 20 Indigenous artists co-curated by All My Relations Gallery and Honor the Earth. The exhibition is made of both prints and original works of art that highlights Honor the Earth's 31 years of Indigenous outreach and community resistance. In correspondence with the art and activism theme, we are excited to also include paintings from the Minneapolis community.

Visual art plays an important role as it has the ability to stimulate and encourage a unifying perspective. Through art, it can evoke emotion, tell stories, inspire and motivate. When channeled as a vehicle it carries issues of consciousness where it can become a catalyst for meaningful change.

Artist Participants: John Isaiah Pepion, Jesus Barraza, Jaque Fragua, Betty Laduke, Votan, Gregg Deal, Nani Chacon, Chip Thomas, Kim Smith, Tom Greyeyes, Star Wallowingbull, Rabbet Strickland, Donald Montileaux, Alania Buffalo Spirit, Ron Toahanie Jackson, Michael Horse, Remy Fredenberg, Jaycee Beyale, Cheyenne Randall and Lucie Skjefte.

All My Relations Gallery, 1414 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis, MN. Gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Closed Sunday and Monday. For more information, call 612-235-4970 or visit www.allmyrelationsarts.com.
