This is Not a Silent Movie
In January and February, two anticipated exhibitions focus on similar themes. In I.M.N.D.N., the Art Gym presents a star list of the region’s most vividly inventive Native American artists, including Rick Bartow, Wendy Red Star, and Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds. Meanwhile, the Museum of Contemporary Craft teams up with the Anchorage Museum to offer four contemporary Alaska Native artists who are blending ancient traditions with new media in This Is Not a Silent Movie. Both shows include works by Nicholas Galanin.
This Is Not a Silent Movie involves the screening of a not-so-silent movie, On the Ice, about a seal hunt gone tragically wrong, at the Hollywood Theatre on January 24.
