The scope of the work in this exhibition reflects the intricate nature of indigenous identity. Guest curator Donna Garcia has selected ten artists that reveal expressions of pain, resiliency, resistance, healing, tradition, history and celebration. Spirit: Focus on Indigenous Art, Artists and Issues is an initiative designed to educate the public, through lens-based art, regarding the true history of indigenous people and recruit advocates for indigenous issues everywhere, but with a specific focus on the US and Canada, where native lands and people аre still coming under attack everyday.
