Stereotypes Aren't Real

Thursday, Aug 18: Artist Talk

Matika Wilbur via 516 ARTS website

On Thursday, Aug. 18, head to 516 ARTS to hear the photographer Matika Wilbur discuss her project documenting Native America, Project 562: Photographing Contemporary Native America. Her work is focused on addressing stereotypes in the portrayal of Native Americans and the unapologetic appropriation of Native imagery in the western world. She hopes to educate viewers to look beyond the typical 19th century depictions of Native people, to see their thriving contemporary culture. Her photos are also in the current 516 ARTS exhibition As We See It: Contemporary Native American Photographers, on display until September 17. This artist talk begins at 6pm.
