Will Wilson: Critical Indigenous Photograph Exchange
February 6, 2015 through May 10, 2015Sheldon’s offering for PhotoFest 2015 presents a selection of recent work by Native American photographer Will Wilson, who was born in San Francisco and raised on the Navajo reservation. His work combines nineteenth-century processes with digital technology to stimulate dialogue around “photographic exchange” as it pertains to Native Americans. Through a series of ongoing performances—under the general title Critical Indigenous Photograph Exchange—the artist engages in questions about identity, multiculturalism, and Americanness.
