This series invites Native American and First Nations women artists and curators living and working in the United States and Canada to highlight their individual practices and share their experience as knowledge producers in the contemporary art world. The speakers will share their art- and exhibition-making processes and collaborations, as well as thoughts about their roles and responsibilities as cultural stewards.

Borders are lies unless they are mountains or water. Weaving & stitching serve as physical embodiments of overlapping & intersecting nature of creation in relation to land/water to their dependents (plant/animal) and to cultures and sociopolitical constructs. Merritt Johnson will share her aesthetic considerations of the layering of the image as engagement with seen and unseen, impossibility and limitation in sight as it relates to our capacities based on lifespan, experience, culture, expectation in connection to land and water.
