Moderated by Andrea Hanley (Navajo), this panel presents a dynamic discussion between three Native American artists, Steven Paul Judd (Choctaw/Kiowa), Frank Buffalo Hyde (Onondaga/Nez Perce), and Virgil Ortiz (Cochiti Pueblo), who will discuss practice, process, and self-determination. Native American artists are constantly reimagining their narratives, and addressing context, community, and intersection with other artists. This discussion is an ongoing examination of the contemporary Indigenous art movement, within the context of the contemporary art world.
