Hearing the Voices of Student Artists

If you happen to live in Phoenix or to be planning a trip, this is an exhibit not to miss. Opening February 6th, the Heard Museum at 2301 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix is having an exhibit called “Confluence: Inter-generational Collaborations.” The exhibit includes works co-created by seven pairs of American Indian artists from the Southwest area. Each pair includes one established mentor artist and one emerging artist between 16 and 20. The exhibit includes diverse mediums from film and painting to fashion design and fiber art. The works are actually being created and completed at the museum.

 
As described on the Heard website,

“Confluence is the merging of many artistic voices, exploring what it means to be young leaders and culture bearers in Indian Country today. At the present time, as Indian Country is changing and more tribal communities are experiencing a flux in their demographics—with percentages of people under 30 years old at an all-time high—the need for exchange between generations is critical. The collective understanding of “what is an elder” is another changing perspective. Generations are prioritizing the necessity to convene and collaborate with many age groups, to benefit cultural gain and to address issues facing their communities and people using fresh and relevant practices.”

The exhibit will take place from Saturday, February 6 through Sunday, April 17th.
