(3.17) Another installment in the ‘Dead Animals’ symposium series at the Bell Gallery, this time with artist Nicholas Galanin, a multi-disciplinary artist and musician of mixed Tlingit/Aleut and non-Native ancestry. His work “often explores a dialogue of change and identity between Native and non-Native communities.” From his wiki bio:
Nicholas Galanin was born in Sitka, Alaska in 1979. As a young boy, he learned to work with jewelry and light metals from his father. At London Guildhall University in England, he learned silversmithing and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He then received a Masters of Fine Arts in indigenous visual arts at Massey University in New Zealand.
Exhibit runs through March 27. Seen here is Galanin’s “Inert.”
