Untouchable Artifacts

July 17, 2021 - September 30, 2021

Antebellum shirts with beaded seams and ironed collars of numerous colors float ominously along the wall of a gallery space hallway at torso height.

Untouchable Artifacts: A Virtual and Printed Exhibition on Indigenous Storytelling, History, and Resilience is a love letter to the art, practice, and importance of indigenous storytelling on Turtle Island. In the exhibition, eleven indigenous artists who hold intersectional identities and carry ancestral knowledge continue the tradition of storytelling. Each artist has recorded themselves reading their story.
This exhibition is created by Five Oaks Museum’s 2021 Guest Curators Rya Hueston (Diné) and Kat Salas (Chiricahua, Apache).
