@ THE ZIMMERLI Next Week: Artist Talk & Exhibition Opening
Artist Talk: Bently Spang
Thursday, September 21, 6
to 8 pm
In the talk
"Unvanished Native," Bently Spang presents recent works that
are central to his commitment as an artist to reclaiming his Indigenous
identity and re-expressing a Native-sourced definition of his
experience. Spang uses the historical artmaking methodologies, and
sometimes re-imagined art forms of his people, to explore issues of
cultural continuity and debunk the "mythology of the
vanished" created for his and many other Native communities.
