Native Futures: Le’Ana Asher and Lydia Cheshewalla in Conversation

November 1 @ 7:30 pm


The Center for Native Futures “brings together Native artists to imagine ourselves richly, where art can provide a lens to learn from the past, nurture our present, and realize a thriving future” in the city of Zhegagoynak (Chicago in the Potawatomi language).


Meet artists Le’Ana Asher (Ojibwe); and Lydia Cheshewalla (Osage/Chicana), all of whom have work installed in the Center for Native Futures’ inaugural exhibition Native Futures and their portraits by Rosalie Favell on view at the Block. Join us in learning more about these artists’ creative practices and the importance of fostering dynamic, expansive spaces for Indigenous arts and artists in Chicago. This conversation will be moderated by Lois Taylor Biggs (Cherokee Nation/White Earth Ojibwe), Rice Curatorial Fellow in Native American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, with welcome remarks from Center for Native Futures Co-founder and Director of Operations Monica Rickert-Bolter (Potawatomi/Black).


This program is co-presented with the Center for Native Futures and Northwestern’s 30 Days of Indigenous.
