‘Graphic Protest’ Installation in Progress

January 5, 2011

Next week, my new show opens at Central Michigan University. Exhibiting alongside US-based Mexican printmaker Alynn Guerra, the show is called Graphic Protest and was curated by Anne Gouchenour. Similar to my recent show in Cleveland (and incorporating my baseball bats), this installation also focuses on notions of immigration and indigeneity. To make this happen, I screened over 300 pennants (7 different designs) using Anishinaabemowin and English text as the subject. I am also including a large-scale wall painting addressing the Occupation of Alcatraz by Indians of All Tribes.
Click through for three images I took on my phone, just as a teaser. Sorry for the poor quality. For more information click here.
