Skawennati – My Life As An Avatar

When: Thu., Jan. 26, 5 p.m. 2017

This Visiting Artist Lecture is presented in partnership with the Miller Gallery, Conflict Kitchen, and the Carnegie Mellon University School of Art. Skawennati makes art that addresses history, the future, and change. Her pioneering new media projects include the online gallery/chat-space and mixed-reality event, CyberPowWow (1997-2004); a paper doll/time-travel journal, Imagining Indians in the 25th Century (2001); and TimeTraveller™(2008-2013), a multi-platform project featuring nine machinima episodes. These have been widely presented across North America in major exhibitions such as “Now? Now!” at the Biennale of the Americas; and “Looking Forward (L’Avenir)” at the Montreal Biennale.
