In this talk, Emma Robbins will discuss her visual art as well as her activist work with The Navajo Water Project and The Chapter House, describing the intersections of art and activism in her practice. Robbins navigates many different worlds in her interdisciplinary work, always with a commitment to Indigenous rights and her Diné community. Her efforts in these spheres are braided together by the issues many Native women face, both on and off the reservation – and, crucially, by their potential solutions. In her work, Robbins strives to raise awareness about concerns ranging from the lack of clean water on Native Nations, to health hazards caused by abandoned uranium mines in the American Southwest, to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis and broad issues regarding the representations and misrepresentations of Native Peoples in American culture.
This event is in conjunction with Native Feminisms, a 2020-2021 apexart Open Call exhibition curated by Elizabeth S. Hawley.Buy tickets/get more info now
