The Unsettled exhibition amasses 200 artworks by 80 artists living and/or working in a super-region we call the Greater West, a geographic area that stretches from Alaska to Patagonia, and from Australia to the American West. Though ranging across thousands of miles, this region shares many similarities: vast expanses of open land, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, colonialism, and the ongoing conflicts that inevitably arise when these factors coexist. Unsettled makes connections among the diverse cultures and artistic practices of this super-region. The specific geographic focus of Unsettled begins in Alaska and continues down the west coast of North America, through Central America, concluding in Colombia. Works included span 2,000 years, ranging from Pre-Columbian to modern and contemporary art. Among the contemporary Alaska artists whose works are included in this exhibition are Rebecca Lyon, Nicholas Galanin, Brian Adams, Allison Warden and the late Ken Lisbourne. Five themes serve as the guiding organizational scheme for the exhibition: Shifting Ground, Colliding Cultures; Colonizing Resources; The Sublime Open; and Experimental Diversity.
