On October 8, 2020, Aperture hosted a conversation with Alan Michelson and Chrissie Iles—who cocurated his 2019 exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art—to discuss his career and the power of contemporary Indigenous art. For more than thirty years, New York–based artist Alan Michelson has produced evocative, influential works that excavate colonial histories of invasion and eviction. A Mohawk member of the Six Nations of the Grand River, Michelson uses photography, painting, video, and installation to create dynamic spaces of visual and auditory immersion.
In a series of public programs that accompanied the fall issue of Aperture magazine, “Native America,” photographers, historians, and writers discussed the historical relationships between and new perspectives on photography and Native representation.
