Skin(S) Visual Art Exhibition Artists Reception says
Rosy Simas Danse and Intermedia Arts present: Skin(s)
A Dance Work, Visual Arts Exhibit, Film, and Web Media Project

Skin(s) shares the beauty and diversity of how Native people identify and examines the contradictions, pride, joy, pain, and sorrow that arise out of our many dimensions of identity.

The Skin(s) exhibit showcases artworks by Minnesotans who express multi-dimensional identities from Dakota, Ojibwe, Ponca, Lakota, Navajo, and other indigenous nations. Part of a larger project including dance, film, and a web media project, the Skin(s) exhibition features the work of Hilary Abe, Carolyn Lee Anderson, James Autio, Julie Buffalohead, Andrea Carlson, Elizabeth Day, Aza Erdrich, Marlena Myles, Jonathan Thunder, Maggie Thompson, Rory Wakemup, Dyani White Hawk, and Marne Zafar, and is curated by Heid E. Erdrich. These paintings, prints, sculptures, and films reveal the power and diversity of urban Native artists.

Join us on October 21 for the Opening Reception of the Skin(s) Exhibition and the World Premiere of the Skin(s) performance.

More Info on the Exhibit:

The Skin(s) dance explores what we hold, reveal, and perceive through our skin. The dance is housed within a paper environment with a surround sound score and moving images. To create the Skin(s) dance production, director Rosy Simas is joined by her main collaborator French composer Fran├žois Richomme, poet Heid E. Erdrich, lighting designer Valerie Oliveiro, and performers Holo Lue Choy, Lela Pierce, and Taja Will. Simas has created moving images from her travels to urban and rural Native communities. These moving images also feature the cinematography of filmmaker Elizabeth Day whose film Skin(s) is featured in the exhibit.
