In Dialogue: the map is not the territory
In Dialogue is an occasional series of interdisciplinary, discussion-based seminars that explore art on view at the Museum in relation to works in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Over the next three months, we will take inspiration from the map is not the territory to consider timely and key exhibition themes and will be led by the facilitators below.
Decolonizing Art/Reframing Landscapes
Sara Siestreem (Hanis Coos, 1976-) is a master artist from the Umpqua River Valley on the South Coast of Oregon. Siestreem’s studio work is multi-disciplinary. Her primary language is painting, but she also works in photography, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, video, and traditional Indigenous weaving. Her art practice branches into education and institutional reform. Siestreem created and runs a weaving program for the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians. She teaches Studio Arts and Indigenous Studies Courses at PSU and BFA Thesis at PNCA.
The In Dialogue series is cosponsored by Portland State University–University Studies.
