Join us for a virtual curatorial tour of Red Coral Stories: Reimagining Classical Pasts for Native Futures. Red Coral Stories is an ongoing curatorial project by Kendall Lovely (Diné), a doctoral student at University of California-Santa Barbara, to understand Southwest Native art as part of cultural exchanges across time and space.

The title for this digital exhibition evokes a Red Ancient Mediterranean, in which adoption and adaptation of classical myth, imagery, and other forms of storytelling by Native American artists serves as a way of de-centering classical (that is, a constructed “Greco-Roman”) antiquity as a form of “Western” heritage. This digital exhibition shifts Ancient Greek/Roman/Mediterranean culture as an ancient Western heritage toward creating a borderlands space of cross-cultural exchanges, past and present.

This talk will provide a virtual tour of the exhibition while also providing an outline of her dissertation, which attends to the formation of New Mexico museums in the late 19th/early 20thcentury as dispossessing Diné and Pueblo material culture.
