In Conversation: Jared Yazzie and Jessica Metcalfe
Artist in residence Jared Yazzie will speak with Dr. Jessica Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa), owner of the boutique and blog Beyond Buckskin, about Native American fashion and social issues.
Owner of OXDX Clothing Jared Yazzie will visit Colgate as an artist in residence in conjunction with the Longyear Museum of Anthropology's exhibit, Not a Costume. Major support for the residency is provided by the Colgate Arts Council, and additional support is provided by the ALANA Cultural Center, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Department of Art and Art History, Museum Studies Program, Native American Studies Program, Communities and Identities, and the Howe Fund.
The Longyear Museum of Anthropology's exhibit Not a Costume examines issues of identity, stereotypes, and cultural appropriation connected to contemporary Indigenous fashion of the Western Hemisphere. The exhibition is curated by students and museum staff in collaboration with Colgate community members (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) who identify as members of an Indigenous community in the Americas. Fashion items range from earrings to skirts, traditional regalia to T-shirts, and high fashion to streetwear.
