Featured Artist: Cannupa Hanska Luger

Artwork On Display Now - August, 2019

Cannupa Hanska Luger is a New Mexico-based, multi-disciplinary artist. Raised on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, he is of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. Interweaving performance, visual arts, and political action, Luger's work invites us all to engage with Indigenous Peoples and values apart from the colonial lens.  

Luger will be visiting the museum November 15-17 for a series of events exploring Indigeneity in the twenty-first century. All events are free and open to the public.

Luger's ar-ti-fact exhibit will be on view in the museum's Oregon—Where Past Is Present hall through August 2019.
