This exhibition marks the tenth anniversary of the biennial Map(ing) — Multiple Artists Printing (Indigenous and Native Geographies) — project and includes 28 prints created by Native American and Indigenous artists who work collaboratively with graduate students from Arizona State University’s School of Art printmaking program. Together the artists and students create limited-edition prints by using the uniqueness of the medium as a vehicle for visual communication, sharing their culture, place, language and identity. The artists come from traditional and non-traditional art-making perspectives and work with a range of media including painting, sculpture, weaving, beadwork and ceramics. During the collaborative printmaking experience, conversation flourishes between the artists and the students.

All of the works are in ASU Art Museum’s collection. Map(ing) was founded by Mary Hood, project director and associate professor in the School of Art. Hood is an internationally known printmaker, and a selection of her etchings are included in this exhibition.

Map(ing) is part of ASU Art Museum’s Spotlight series, bringing attention to innovative projects in the arts and design by ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts faculty and students.

Supported by an NEA ArtWorks grant, ASU School of Art, ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund at ASU Art Museum.
