Artist Conversation: Alan Michelson and Christopher Green
For more than thirty years, the New York–based artist Alan Michelson, a Mohawk member of the Six Nations of the Grand River, has produced socially engaged, site-specific art grounded in local context and informed by the retrieval of repressed histories. He joins Christopher Green, visiting assistant professor of art history at Lake Forest College, to discuss his recent work, including photo and video installations presented in the exhibition Native America: In Translation.
Native America: In Translation is curated by Wendy Red Star. The exhibition is organized by Aperture Foundation, New York, and is made possible, in part, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
