Things are looking Native, Natives looking Whiter  installation by Nicholas Galanin 
Tlingit/Aleut/ Multi-Disciplinary Artist 


"I work with concepts, the medium follows.  In the business of this "Indian Art World" I have become impatient with the institutional prescription and its monolithic attempt to define culture as it unfolds.  Native American Art will not be commonly defined as our work moves freely through time.  The viewer, collector, or curators' definition often conveys more about themselves than that of the "Native Artist".  In the past I have struggled with this title, though I now embrace my position as a contemporary indigenous artist with belief that some forms of resistance often carry equal amounts of persistence. "  ...Nicholas Galanin

NE 2nd Avenue by Teo Castellanos takes the audience on a runaway journey through Miami's richly textured mix of cultures and influences. Insanity Isn't by Rudi Goblen opens eyes in a nightmare of modern proportions, keeps it real the way only a B-Boy can, and finds the way to insane sanity. The critically acclaimed NE 2nd Avenue won the Fringe First Award at the 2003 Edinburgh Fringe Festival (past winners include Emma Thompson and Rowan Atkinson). Mature content: language, adult themes.   


Teo and Rudi are Artist in Schools at Fireweed Academy 3-6  Feb. 20-23. 


This project is made possible with generous support from National Performance Network, Out North, the National Endowment for the Arts and WESTAF/TourWest and Alaska State Council on the Arts.
