Please join Nanibah Chacon (Diné and Xicana), a muralist and community engaged public works artist as she talks about her current work based upon the insertion of indigenous presence into the colonized urban landscape. She will use imagery to provoke questions connecting us to landscape, traditions, and people.
She will be in the Handwerker Gallery on Tuesday, November 13 at 6 PM.
Chacon was raised in Chinli, Arizona, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. She began as a graffiti artist at 16 and continued as such for the next 10 years. Chacon is using her art to place a spotlight on the injustices being brought on women of color. She shows her work across the U.S. and internationally. She created the largest mural in New Mexico called “Resistance”. She holds a B.A. in Art Education from the University of New Mexico and has received numerous awards. She hopes to continue working on large-scale, site-specific murals to expand and diversify her audience and to build upon the social perspectives conveyed through her art.
