ESMoA Experience #37: MATRIARCHS

October 18, 2018 – January 26, 2019

MatriarchsEl Segundo Museum of Art presents Experience #37: MATRIARCHS opening Thursday, October 18 and running through January 26, 2019.

Curated by two indigenous curators – Kristen Dorsey (Chickasaw Nation) and Jaclyn Roessel (Diné) – MATRIARCHS will feature multiple works by 12 contemporary womxn indigenous artists representing 14 indigenous communities. Four artists represent communities indigenous to California. Featured in the experience are an array of mediums including fashion, metalwork, photography, painting, basketry, and video.

“As Indigenous womxn, we have occupied essential leadership roles in our communities for centuries. While the forces of colonization have sought to dismantle our cultures and life ways, we have fought to maintain and preserve them – not only surviving, but asserting our Indigenous identities at every turn throughout history. Today, our womxn are leading and shaping movements to protect both natural resources and Indigenous bodies. Leading this critical work to heal, recover, and shape brighter, healthier futures, Indigenous womxn are occupying roles as activists, scholars, educators, doctors, attorneys, writers, artists, scientists, and social workers.
