October 2018 Exhibition: A Solo Exhibition by Bobby Martin – “But You Don’t Look Indian..”

October 1st, 2018 - October 28th, 2018

Art Ventures Gallery launches a solo exhibition on October 4th, 2018 featuring Bobby Martin, artist, professor and curator of the traveling exhibition, Return to Exile: Contemporary Southeastern Indian Arts. His Exhibition “But You Don’t Look Indian…” is a refrain he’s heard that conjures up complicated history, personal stories, and imposed categorizations about heritage and family.  Much of Martin’s work is based upon “photographs that belonged to my full blood Indian grandmother, my aunts, my mother — images found in shoeboxes, forgotten in the bottoms of drawers, or found among the tattered black pages of old leather-bound photo albums.. there is an almost universal recognition among viewers of a sense of history and identity, evoking memories of their own family’s past.” This must see exhibition runs through Sunday October 28th.
