ON VIEW FROM APRIL 8TH: INDIGENOUS AMERICANS: POST COLONIAL EXPRESSIONS
STRAAT Gallery is our more intimate ‘white cube’ mezzanine gallery space. The gallery is located inside the massive STRAAT museum main hall just above the museum shop.
The gallery is our chance to tell focused stories about the diversity and popularity of the global street art and graffiti culture.
Previous solo exhibitions include Dutch calligraffiti legend Niels Shoe Meulman and seminal graffiti movement founder Cornbread.
We also make a habit of partnering our gallery exhibitions with other important galleries, museums, projects and curators in our community. This includes successful exhibitions with Denmark-based project The Jaunt and L.A.-based powerhouse Thinkspace Projects.
INDIGENOUS AMERICANS: POST COLONIAL EXPRESSIONS
STRAAT Museum and STRAAT Gallery are pleased to announce our current gallery exhibition, Indigenous Americans: Post Colonial Expressions. This exhibition features four contemporary artists with Native American heritage: Jaque Fragua, Danielle SeeWalker, Kaplan Bunce & Anthony Garcia Sr.
As part of our ongoing mission to expose the public to the diversity of street art and graffiti culture worldwide, this exhibition exposes and celebrates an underexposed subculture within. Indigenous Americans: Post Colonial Expressions speaks to the unity a diverse culture embodies, and to the deeply rooted history of Indigenous makers and their ongoing relationship with public space painting.
In the words of participating artist Kaplan Bunce: “The contemporary Urban Art landscape to me looks like a mix between a culture-rich sharing of art practices from around the globe. I see unity in the community and have found that by continuously practicing my indigenousness throughout these spaces I am continuing a pathway made by those who have been making marks on walls for all of time.”
The STRAAT Gallery can be visited with a general admission ticket to STRAAT.
Press inquiries can be directed to STRAAT Gallery assistant: firstname.lastname@example.org
