CSCRE 2018-19 Discussion Series:  ON NATIVE LANDS Decolonization, Solidarity & Resurgence

Nanibah Chacon (Diné and Xicana) presents:


Date: Tuesday,  November 13, 2018 

Time: 6:00 PM

Location: Handwerker Gallery

 Please join Nanibah Chacon (Diné and Xicana), a muralist and community engaged public works artist, as she talks about  her current work which is based upon the insertion of indigenous presence into the colonized urban landscape.  She will use imagery to provoke questions connecting us to landscape, traditions, and people. 

Chacon was raised in Chinli, Arizona and Albuquerque New Mexico. She began as a graffiti artist at 16 and continued as such for the next 10 years.  Chacon is using her art to place a spotlight on the injustices being brought on women of color.  She shows her work across the U.S. and internationally. She created the largest mural in New Mexico, called “Resistance.” She holds a BA in Art Education from the University of New Mexico and has received numerous awards. She hopes to continue working on large- scale, site-specific murals in order to expand and diversify her audience and to build upon the social perspectives conveyed through her art.
