Visiting Artist Lecture: Frohawk Two Feathers, March 7

Frohawk Two Feathers re-imagines colonial history in his intimate paintings, conjuring a fictional cast of subjects, including freed slaves, militiamen, dukes, lords and tribesmen. Two Feathers paints ink and acrylic scenes onto coffee- and tea-stained paper, detailing colonial uprisings against the imaginary superpowers Frengland and Fenoscandia. His images contain a mashup of references, combining elements of 18th- and 19th-century colonial portraiture and folk art.

The lecture is scheduled for Tuesday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m. in VAC 1B20.
