Decolonizing Alaska
Start Date: 2/3/2017Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 3/18/2017End Time: 9:00 PM


This multimedia visual art exhibit features contemporary artists exploring and responding to Alaska’s history of colonization and its emerging influence on sustainability, both environmental and cultural. A collaboration of 30 diverse artists, Decolonizing Alaska introduces new ideas around Alaskan culture by connecting endangered traditions with contemporary identity constructs.

“As the world’s attention shifts to the shrinking polar ice cap and the future of our planet, Alaska’s place in the world has moved from the fringe to the center,” Curator Asia Freeman said. “Concerns about climate change and cultural survival resulting from colonization have pushed Alaska to the forefront of global conversations."

The exhibition is sponsored by Bunnell Street Arts Center and supported in part by grants from ArtWorks, the CIRI Foundation and Rasmuson Foundation, with additional support from the exhibit venues and Rasmuson Foundation through the Harper Arts Touring Fund, administered, under contract, by the Alaska State Council on the Arts.

Decolonizing Alaska will run February 3–March 18 in the Flagg Building Atrium. An opening reception that is free and open to the public will be held on Friday, Feb. 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Please RSVP here
