Artist Talk: Ka’ila Farrell-Smith

Sat, 11/05/2022 - 2:00pm

Join Ka'ila Farrell-Smith, contemporary Klamath Modoc visual artist, writer and activist based in Modoc Point, Oregon and “Creative in Residence” at JSMA during Many Wests: Artists Shape an American Idea, for an artist talk. The conceptual framework of her practice focuses on channeling research through a creative flow of experimentation and artistic playfulness rooted in Indigenous aesthetics and abstract formalism. Utilizing painting and traditional Indigenous art practices, her work explores space in-between the Indigenous and western paradigms. Audience Q&A to follow. Generous support for this project provided by Art Bridges.

Ka’ila Farrell-Smith’s program is presented in conjunction with Many Wests: Artists Shape an American Idea, one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Art Bridges Initiative.
