IAIA Artist-in Residence Talk
Wednesday, April 26, 2016 | 12:30 - 1:30 pm
IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA)
2nd floor Conference Room

Bring your lunch and join visual artist Ka'ila Farrell-Smith (Klamath/Modoc) and jeweler Anthony Lovato (Santo Domingo Pueblo) as they discuss their artistic practice. Both artists conclude their month of participation in the IAIA Artist-in-Residence program on the IAIA Campus with this event.

Ka'ila Farrell-Smith (Klamath/Modoc) is focused on channeling research into a creative flow of experimentation and artistic playfulness that is rooted in Indigenous aesthetics and abstract formalism. Ka'ila is a contemporary Klamath and Modoc visual artist based in Portland, Oregon.

Anthony Lovato (Santo Domingo Pueblo) is the son of notable lapidary artist Mary Coriz Lovato and grandson of Santiago Leo Coriz. Lovato, fifth-generation Pueblo of Santo Domingo, employs unique tufa-cast and fabricated jewelry that bridges both traditional and contemporary styles. It also conveys great presence, while reflecting his family's creative legacy as well as Santo Domingo's religious heritage.
