Andrea Carlson

June 13, 2009 – January 10, 2010

Museum: American Indian Museum Heye Center

Location: Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House

On view are more than 20 works on paper, including new and large-scale pieces, by Minnesota-based artist Andrea Carlson (Anishinaabe/European, b. 1979). Her works reflect cultural narratives and stories while offering a sharp commentary on museums, collections, and contemporary storytelling. Each has a metaphoric and literal biting edge, with sharp lines and layered meanings.
