Professor Joseph Kunkel - a Northern Cheyenne tribal member - will draw from his own experience as an architect and community designer, with extensive experience working on building capacity in Native American communities, in this remarkable exhibit.
The reopening of Kunkel’s show will continue a critical discussion about the physical and non-physical divisions that recognize and reconcile polarized groups. With the intention to demonstrate how architecture and design can create space for unification and negotiation, the exhibit will explore works of art across a spectrum of design tactics.
During the exhibition, a mural will be created by Texas graffiti artist Joerael Julian Elliott. His works range from small-scale mixed media drawings and paintings to large murals. Joerael has developed a visual and conceptual vocabulary from his direct experience as an activist and street artist.
