Will Wilson, Insurgent Hopi Maiden, Melissa Pochoema, Citizen of the Hopi Tribe, 2015, printed 2019, Archival pigment print from wet plate collodion scan, 50 x 40 in. Art Bridges.

Diné (Navajo) photographer Will Wilson’s ongoing Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange (CIPX) project is dedicated to creating a contemporary vision of Native North America. Wilson combines 19th century wet plate (tintype) photography with 21st century AR technology to create new conversations about Indigenous identity. To expand the conversation, historical images from Edward Curtis’ The North American Indian (1907-1930) will also be on view, as well as selections from Wilson’s new series Connecting the Dots, depicting the pollution and damaging effects of uranium mining on Navajo lands.

The exhibition was curated by Mindy Besaw, Curator of American Art/Director of Fellowships & Research from Crystal Bridges, and Ashley Holland, Associate Curator from the Art Bridges Foundation. In Conversation: Will Wilson is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Generous support provided by Art Bridges and the Laura C. Harris Series.

In 2021-2022, Denison University will feature Indigenous art exhibits, speakers, and dance performances by the Laura C. Harris Series focused on the theme, Imagining Together: Indigenous Activisms and Feminisms. Guest speakers and artists include U.S. Poet Joy Harjo, photographer Will Wilson, Red Sky performance, Professor Kim TallBear (author of Native American DNA), Professor Robin Wall Kimmerer (author of Braiding Sweetgrass), Maura Garcia Dance, and more. The aim is to deepen and broaden campus conversations in Indigenous studies, activisms, and histories, over the course of the year and beyond.
