ScaleHouse is thrilled to present ScaleHouse Voices, a series of talks with visiting artists of diverse disciplines, exploring ideas and techniques, practice and process, creativity and culture.
The series debuts April 18 when contemporary visual artist Ka'ila Farrell-Smith joins us to explore Contemporary Indigenous Artists and culture specific to Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. She is a Klamath Modoc artist exhibiting, teaching, and engaged with Native Communities in Oregon. View her work here: www.kailafarrellsmith.com/
ARTIST TALK: A Lens on Contemporary Indigenous Art and Culture
Ka’ila will highlight her creative and professional practice and life experience, including a brief history of the Klamath and Modoc tribes and maps of the ancestral homelands of Indigenous Nations of Oregon, and acknowledge that we are on occupied Native Land. She will cover a chronology of her recent artistic practice, explain inter-generational Indigenous educational models, and the importance of collaboration.
Attendees will discover Ka’ila's influences, inspirations, contemporary colleagues, and Native artists using agency to bring awareness to Water and Land protection from dangerous fossil fuel and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) projects across Indian Country.
