Geographies of Memory : Melanie Yazzie

Melanie Yazzie: Geographies of Memory


Curated by Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director, UNM Art Museum 
On view in the Main Gallery, University of New Mexico Art Museum   

 

The UNM Art Museum announces the launch of a new biennial solo exhibition series, which will feature the work of significant established or emerging contemporary indigenous artists. Melanie Yazzie: Geographies of Memory, will inaugurate the series in Winter/Spring 2014. 

 

Highlighting the art of printmaker and sculptor Melanie Yazzie, whose compelling works of layered images draw upon her rich Navajo/Diné heritage, Melanie Yazzie: Geographies of Memory includes examples of the artist's monotypes, woodblock prints, lithographs and etchings. A special body of Yazzie's recent paper-pulp prints with photolithographic elements, as well as selections of her large-scale steel sculptures and smaller works in bronze, will also be featured in the exhibition, along with a body of her recent gouache drawings. Yazzie's works enigmatically weave together geographic, cultural, and autobiographical images and referents, transporting the viewer into spaces and places of memory and imagination.
