Artist Profile: Cannupa Hanska Luger – Day Two

CANNUPA HANSKA LUGER created this entanglement of antlers using ceramic, felt, and steel. He is making a hanging sculpture for this summer’s public art show RACE AND REVOLUTION.

Q: Why did you want to participate in this show?

The conversation this exhibition is having mirrors the ongoing themes in my own work, from the perspective of my present Indigenous experience. My intention in participation is to continue to show that Native peoples are not simply still here, but we are thriving, adapting and creating work that speaks about our experience as survivors of an apocalypse that has already taken place in America.
