SANTA FE — Join Museum of Contemporary Native Arts and the Institute of American Indian Art’s Artist-in-Residence (A-i-R) Joe Feddersen (Colville Confederated Tribes) as he discusses his residency and art practice on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 from 12 noon until 1:30 p.m. The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts is located at 108 Cathederal in Santa Fe.
Feddersen (Colville Confederated Tribes) grounds his vision in Plateau traditional crafts and culture – the fish trap, the blanket or the twined basket, portraying a contemporary cultural landscape. Speaking of the land through a merging of traditional basket patterns and contemporary iconography, Feddersen works in printmaking, twined baskets and glass. With degrees in printmaking from the University of Washington (BFA) and the University of Wisconsin, Madison (MFA), the printed image has always been an important means of expression.
Feddersen is Faculty Emeritus Professor at The Evergreen State College and a professional artist. His works are collected by major museums across the country including the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., the Whitney Museum, New York, Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, Indiana, Seattle Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Craft Museum at Portland, Oregon, Haley Ford Museum, Salem.
Feddersen’s work is represented in a number of books including Mixed Blessings by Lucy Lippard, Manifestations, by IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico and Changing Hands, Museum of Art Design New York, New York. A monogram Joe Feddersen/Vital Signs is part of the Jacob Lawrence book series from the University of Washington Press. Upon retirement he returned home to the reservation and now resides and works in Omak, Washington, on the Colville Confederation Tribal Reservation.
This event is free to the public.
