LOS ANGELES—Eye-catching black-and-white photography, hanging tribal masks and posing statues align the white walls of the Crafts and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) presenting the “This Is Not A Silent Movie: Four Contemporary Alaska Native Artists” exhibition from May 26 to September 8.

 

In partnership with the Anchorage Museum, CAFAM proudly introduces the artworks of four Alaska Native artists featuring Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Da-ka-xeen Mehner, Susie Silook, and Nicholas Galanin.

 

Through the lens of these four contemporary Alaska native artists, “This Is Not A Silent Movie” takes a closer look at redefining the term “native art” and crosses borders exploring race, native stereotypes, and individuality within the native heritage. The exhibition remains rooted in native heritage often masqueraded by centuries of indigenous history and stereotypes.

 









Nicholas Galanin’s “Things are Looking Native, Native’s Looking Whiter” (2012) caught eyes and turned heads with his digital photography and a split-image of Princess Leia in her iconic bun and a Hopi girl in traditional butterfly whorl hairstyle.

 

“This Is A Silent Movie” can be seen at CAFAM on 5814 Wilshire Boulevard. You can also visit www.cafam.org. General admission is $7, and students, seniors and veterans are $5. Children under 10 are free and every first Wednesday on the month is also free.
