Anna Tsouhlarakis: She Made for Her

11.01.2016 – 01.13.2017

Exhibition Summary

Anna Tsouhlarakis is at the forefront of contemporary Native American art. In She Made for Her, she created three large-scale sculptures made of materials purchased from IKEA’s “as-is” section. As viewers encountered the sculptures, their visual experience was mediated by a multi-channel sound installation featuring Native women describing those very objects. Some of the women approached the works as abstractions, some as utilitarian forms, and others as cultural symbols. The overlapping and divergent voices prompted viewers to rethink their cultural expectations when encountering the work of Native artists. This exhibition was presented as part of the Open Fields project at the Neubauer Collegium.
