Chazen Museum of Art | Our Kind of Happy Hour: Noah Mapes

October 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Artist Truman Lowe (Ho-Chunk) determined four keywords to define what he called “Native modernism”: origin, a knowledge of one’s roots; vision, the use of contemporary aesthetics; place, an attention to environment; and voice, emotional meaning.
Join us on Facebook Live for Our Kind of Happy Hour on October 14th at 6:30 p.m. with Noah Mapes, former Chazen Museum of Art curatorial assistant, who will place Lowe’s artwork in conversation with Marie Watt’s (Seneca) Companion Species (Speech Bubble) to understand, exemplify, and complicate the definition of “Native modernism.” Noah will also offer a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s current gallery rotation, Origin, Vision, Place, Voice: The Art of Truman Lowe.
