The exhibition “Without Boundaries: Visual Conversations” fosters conversations about topics important to life in the North. Edgar Heap of Birds is an internationally known artist from Oklahoma whose work is focused upon social justice. As part of this exhibition, Heap of Birds will have a temporary public art installation on the museum lawn that explores sovereignty and language. Opening night, Heap of Birds will discuss his artwork and this project with the museum. James Luna is a celebrated visual and performance artist from California whose work confronts stereotypes and misconceptions held by society. Luna has a multimedia installation in “Without Boundaries” and at the opening will perform “Ishi: The Archive Performance” about a Native man who spent the last five years of his life as a living specimen at the University of California Museum at Berkeley in the 1910s. This performance may contain mature content.
