Monumental installation by Cannupa Hanska Luger kicks off Santa Fe Indian Market Week

SANTA FE, NM.- The monumental installation, Every One, by Cannupa Hanska Luger kicked off Santa Fe Indian Market Week, Saturday, August 11, 2018, when it opened at the Museum of International Folk Art, 706 Camino Lejo, Santa Fe. An artist talk with Luger is Thursday, August 16 at 2 pm, also at the Museum. It will remain on display through September 21.

Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian) is one of 16 artists participating in Project Indigene, a collaboration of eight prominent Santa Fe institutions, designed to examine perspectives and create awareness of some of the issues facing indigenous art today.

Luger’s Every One is the result of a social collaboration conceived and created by the artist, who invited communities from across the U.S. and Canada to create two-inch-diameter clay beads. Each of the resulting 4,000 handmade clay beads represents an indigenous individual who has been the victim of gender violence. Strung together, they form a portrait based on a photograph by First Nations photographer Kali Spitzer.

“This social collaboration rehumanizes data through the process of creating handmade objects,” says Luger.

Some of the 4,000 beads were made by members of the Santa Fe community at an event held by the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. The installation compliments two current exhibitions at MOIFA, Beadwork Adorns the World, and Crafting Memory: The Art of Community in Peru, which includes indigenous artists using unconventional media to bring attention to issues of cultural identity and social justice. Both institutions are Project Indigene partners.

Project Indigene Artists are: David Bradley (Minnesota Chippewa), Ashley Browning (Santa Clara Pueblo), Frank Buffalo Hyde (Nez Perce/Ondaga), Nocona Burgess (Comanche), Aymar Ccopatty (Aymara), Jason Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo), Shan Gosharn (Eastern Band Cherokee), Teri Greeves (Kiowa), Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, Norwegian), Susan Hudson (Navajo), Nora Naranjo Morse (Santa Clara Pueblo), Carla Quispe (Aymara), Mateo Romero (Cochiti Pueblo), Maria Samora (Taos Pueblo), Charlene Teters (Spokane), and Melanie Yazzie (Navajo).

This Indian Market Week, Project Indigene artists and Partner institutions participate in exhibitions and events on topical issues facing Native Americans and Native American art.
