Join us for the opening reception of new works from artist Summer Zah on Friday, August 24, 2018 from 6 p.m to 9 p.m.

Conceptual artist Summer Zah explores familial, cultural, and institutional influences in a new exhibit at IAO

Summer’s work exudes an honesty of Native people often overlooked by subconscious or conscious profiling. The art is the culmination of overcoming misconceptions about family, the past, and identity to disclose a fearless factuality.

In Summer’s own words, “I have chosen to embrace my ethnocentricity to show that, as humans, we rhyme with each other regardless of nationality. I am too American to be Native, yet I am too Native to be American. Rather than fight this tension, I choose to be inspired by the situation.”

This exhibit will be on display through September 14th.
