SHI is accepting applications a for its remote class, Northwest Coast Art Theory & Practice, led by Jackson Polys (Stephen Paul Jackson). The 10-week class runs April 20-June 26 and includes live lectures on Tuesday evenings and live discussions on Saturday afternoons. Application deadline: April 9. Go HERE to apply.
Students will engage in critical discourse to prepare for engagement with scholarship, markets, and audiences as a professional artist informed by decolonial perspectives rooted in Indigenous intellectual authority. They will be introduced to historical and current negotiations with audience expectations, markets, and modes of reception; issues of exhibition, display and performance; practical issues of materiality, production, and presentation; legal concerns that impact and influence Northwest Coast art; and a variety of Indigenous protocols and worldviews.
Jackson Polys, also known as Stephen Paul Jackson, is a visual artist who lives and works between what are currently called Alaska and New York, whose work reflects examinations into the limits and viability of desires for Indigenous growth. He grew up in Ketchikan, and began carving in Saxman at a young age with his father, Tlingit artist Nathan Jackson. This course is required for the University of Alaska’s Associate of Arts degree with a Northwest Coast arts emphasis.
