Opening Reception and Artist Talk - August 20

In the Auto Immune Response (AIR) series, Wilson (Diné) addresses the relationship between a post-apocalyptic Diné man and the beautiful but toxic environment he inhabits. The series investigates rapid transformation of indigenous lifeways, the disease it has caused and strategies of response that enable cultural survival. A greenhouse hogan is featured in Oak Grove.  See the related publication with essay by noted cultural historian Lucy Lippard.

Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug. 20, 5:30 - 8 p.m.
Artist Talk: Saturday, Aug. 20, 6 p.m.
