Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Special Collections Seminar Room
Joseph Pierce, SBU Associate Professor in the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature, will discuss how contemporary Indigenous artists have remixed and redefined the genre of ethnographic portraiture. Focusing on photography and painting from the late nineteenth century, and on how artists such as Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Jeffrey Gibson have inhabited those same forms to critique the stereotypical representation of Indigenous subjects, this presentation opens up possibilities for reimagining relations with Indigenous ancestors. It offers an overview of the colonial gaze, and then homes in on Indigenous responses to that gaze, responses that subvert, upend, and speculate on otherwise futures for Indigenous people.
This talk is hosted by the SBU Libraries Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility (DEIA) Team.
