Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Deborah Jojola
October 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Deborah Jojola’s creative practice connects her tribal lands and history by reviving images from the past and transforming them into symbolic forms for the future.
Throughout her practice, she has collaborated with Arts of the Pueblo People, East West Center in Honolulu, and Tamarind Institute. She has curated Isleta Pueblo’s national and international exhibitions and worked as an instructor at Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, Institute of American Indian Art, Very Special Art of New Mexico, and OFF Center Community Arts.
While Jojola’s prints and fresco paintings reference historical imagery, her work is also influenced by Surrealism, the intersection of pop and Native culture, and her own personal experiences.
The Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 11th season of Artists Now!, a Wednesday evening lecture series designed for a broad audience with an interest in contemporary visual art. It presents a diverse group of artists working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Join these nationally and inter- nationally recognized practitioners as they explore and expand the boundaries of creative visual practice today.
All lectures take place on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the Arts Center Lecture Hall on the UWM campus. FREE and open to the public!
