The Wheelwright Museum presents Indigenous Women: Border Matters, a new exhibition opening to the public on March 20, 2021. The exhibition features a timely look at four Indigenous women artists who speak to issues on both sides of the U.S. border. Their practice is guided by contemporary issues of identity, self-determination, human rights, and the impacts on the human experience. The works explore and question how Indigenous women interact with the land we inhabit. The layering of symbolism, meaning in the art, and deconstructing concepts including memory, cultural heritage, and politics, form the basis of the exhibition by artists Makaye Lewis (Tohono O’odham), Daisy Quezada Ureña (Mexican-American), M. Jenea Sanchez (Latinx), and Gabriela Muñoz (Latinx).
