Nicholas Galanin Let Them Enter Dancing and Showing Their Faces Presented By UCSB Arts & Lectures
NEW DATE! This event, originally scheduled for April 19, has been rescheduled for May 31. Patrons should keep their original tickets for admission on the new date.
Proclaimed a “standout” by The New York Times, multidisciplinary artist Nicholas Galanin explores conceptions and misconceptions surrounding Indigenous identity. He is widely praised for what have been considered the “definitive works” (ARTnews.com) of the 2019 Whitney Biennial, 2020 Australian Biennale and 2021 Desert X, among other notable exhibitions. His sculptures and multimedia installations intersect in form, image and sound, offering perspectives rooted in connection to the land and broad engagement with contemporary culture. In this illustrated presentation, Galanin, who is of Tlingit and Unanga descent and a citizen of Alaska’s Sitka Tribe, will show how he employs materials and processes that expand dialogue on Indigenous artistic production, and how culture can be carried.
