Artists from The Indigenous Arts Coalition present: “post contemporary”

Time: All day-Thursday, December 5th

Description:

The Indigenous Arts Coalition from the San Francisco Bay Area, an evolving group of culturally and artistically diverse artists identifying as indigenous, are featured at Humboldt State University’s Goudi’ni Gallery in Artists from The Indigenous Arts Coalition present: “post contemporary,” November 8 through December 5, 2013. The exhibit opens with a reception for the artists from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, November 8. The public is invited to attend this free, public event.

The Indigenous Arts Coalition (IAC), originally founded in 2008 as a San Francisco Art Institute student group, has grown to support, acknowledge and promote contemporary Bay Area indigenous artists of all disciplines. The IAC artists incorporate a unique and interesting variety of art mediums to be seen in an indigenous-minded fashion. Mediums include painting, installation, sculpture, as well as mixed media and video. Through this presentation the viewer can witness an exhibit where political and social matters are a woven theme amongst ideas of what it is to have indigenous identity in contemporary art. IAC artist Geri Montano speaks of the coalition saying, “I think so many people still have this idea of Native American art in the traditional forms. The Indigenous Arts Coalition aims to show art that is open to new concepts and genres. We self-identifying indigenous artists of the IAC are open to experimenting and expanding as artists, as well as still having a respect for traditions.”
