Joan Slack, Curator at Tweed Museum of Art and professional artist in clay and fiber joins Radio Gallery to discuss Blood Memoirs: Exploring Individuality, Memory, and Culture through Portraiture.

The event was curated by guest curator Amber-Dawn Bear Robe . Her interest in Native American voice and women's point of view guided the platform of the exhibit. It represents a composite of self portraits, with focus on Native American artists, while also including non-Natives to provide a wide range of perspectives.

The exhibit is concerned with portraiture as a way of examining identity. Slack provides examples of various portraits that represent various identities, and the wide range of perspectives and explorations seen throughout Blood Memoirs.
