2018 Artists in Residence
We are thrilled to announce that Native Art Department International will be in residence at the Downtown Art building into the summer thanks to a collaboration between DTA and FABnyc. We are excited to host them as they develop Expanding the Scope, an effort in solidarity and trust building between Native Americans, artists and arts organizations.
Find a brief introduction to the collective below and follow the links to learn more about their work on our website. Stay tuned for more as the residents develop their work on the block.
Native Art Department International
Native Art Department International is a collaborative long-term project created and administered by Maria Hupfield and Jason Lujan. It focuses on communications platforms and art world systems of support while at the same time functioning as an emancipation from identity-based artwork. It seeks to circumvent easy categorization by comprising a diverse range of activities, such as curated exhibitions, video screenings, panel talks, collective art making, and an online presence, each which contain an undercurrent of positive progress through cooperation and non-competition.
