Will Wilson CIPX Project

Event Description:
Will Wilson, native Diné photographer and center of our focus exhibition, is hosting a pop-up portrait studio where he will engage guests in the Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange (CIPX). Referencing the photographs of Edward Curtis, Wilson intends to produce a contemporary visual reimagining of Native American culture through his photographs. Depicting local Native Americans who work to expand the role of their customs and heritage in today’s society, Wilson follows Curtis’s documentary practice, but with a renewed, open, and more fully representative eye. He uses the historic wet plate collodion process, and offers the tintype itself as a gift to the subject in return for the photograph. This pop-up will be open to all who wish to view the process in action. Wilson will then speak on the exhibition’s panel later this evening, alongside various Native individuals whose work focuses on seeking justice and a more prominent role for Native culture in contemporary America.
