Spirit Citizen: Provocative Native American Public Art and Studio Practice

Edgar Heap of Birds

Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds (Native American, Cheyenne/Arapaho, b. 1954) is an artist and an advocate for Indigenous communities worldwide. His work includes multidisciplinary forms of public art messages, large-scale drawings, Neuf Series acrylic paintings, prints, works in glass, and monumental porcelain enamel on steel outdoor sculpture. While representing Indigenous communities, his art focuses first on social justice as well as on the personal freedom to live within the tribal circle as an expressive individual. 

Following the lecture, a Q&A will be led by Hendrik Folkerts, curator of International Contemporary Art at Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Please note that all event times listed are in central time.
