Manifold Meanings: Indigenous Art and Perspectives

September 2021

The inaugural event, "Manifold Meanings: Indigenous Art and Perspectives," took place on September 29, 2021 at the Institute of Contemporary Art. This round table discussion, moderated by Tailinh Agoyo (Co-founder and Director of We Are the Seeds), included artist and muralist Priscilla Bell (Taino), playwright and educator Murielle Borst-Tarrant (Kuna/Rappahannock Nations), and multi-disciplinary artist Jason Wesaw (Potawatomi). Together, they explored the manifold meanings and manifestations of Native art, reflecting a plurality of artistic practices and perspectives, and engaged questions of representation, audience, and culture.
