Join a conversation with artist Gina Adams about her “Broken Treaties” quilt series that addresses the ongoing complex relationship of Native nations to the U.S. government. Her work will be featured in the new exhibition, “Open, Awake, and Alive” curated by Tulsa Artist Fellow Rena Detrixhe opening at the Tulsa Garden Center on Sat., Jan. 13, 2018. Included with Museum admission. Visiting Artist Description: “Gina Adam's cross-media, hybrid studio work includes the reuse of antique quilts and broken treaties between the United States and Native American tribes, sculpture, ceramics, painting, printmaking and drawing. Her work is exhibited extensively throughout the US and resides in many public and private collections. The noted international art critic Lucy Lippard wrote the introduction on her artwork for her Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art Exhibition Its Honor Is Here Pledged which launched her art career and body of work Broken Treaty Quilts into a new contemporary art arena in 2015. In 2016 she was SARF Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow, and had Its Honor Is Hereby Pledged exhibitions in Boulder Colorado at Naropa University’s White Cube Gallery where she is a Faculty in Visual Arts. In the summer of 2017, Gina presented and exhibited at the AIW Conference at Goldsmiths College, University of London, England which will be followed by an exhibition at the Bemis Center of Contemporary Art titled Monarch’s curated by Risa Puleo. 2018 brings many exciting opportunities for Gina including being Artist-in-Residence at Dartmouth College which includes a Solo exhibition, a Kohler Arts Industry/Residency and several more.”
