Will Wilson is the DAM’s Native Arts Artist-in-Residence for March. Will is a photographer who creates tintype portraits as part of his current project, “Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange.” During the last week in March, he will transform the artist-in-residence space in the American Indian Galleries into a “wet’ photography studio. Drop by during museum hours to meet the artist and watch demonstrations of this unique process. More
Will Wilson, an indigenous artist, will discuss how his provocative photographic images challenge Edward S. Curtis's classic portraits of Native Americans frozen in the past. In his documentary style, the tintype of the early 20th century collides with modern people to indigenize the photographic exchange.
Social hour at 5:30 pm, lecture at 6 pm. Tickets are $5 Douglas Society members, $10 DAM members, $12 others. Reservations recommended by March 26.
