Landscapes of Survivance to register/more information

Photographer & Filmmaker Catherine Herrera is a featured artist in ‘Landscapes of Survivance, invited by curator Elizabeth Hawley, who selected nine (9) photographs from Catherine’s ‘Landless Indian Series 2002-2022.’ The long-term project documents Catherine’s family research of her Costanoan & Chumash heritage, and, history in San Francisco, New Almaden, San Jose and Martins Beach. The series reflects on her experience as an indigenous person of mixed race growing up in California.

The exhibit features the work of five contemporary U.S.-based Indigenous artists.  The pieces on view underscore the survivance (survival + resistance) of the artists’ cultural systems of knowledge, particularly as related to place. Each artist imbues their works with meaning specific to their own community and experience, while at the same time revealing the place-based significance of landscape in many Native world views.

Landscapes of Survivance is curated by art historian Elizabeth S. Hawley.

This event is free and open to the public.

In compliance to ADA/504, please direct your accommodation request to Mitch Grieb at mfgrieb@scu.edu at least 72 hours prior to the event.

This event is artist-led and organized; please contact the artist Catherine Herrera directly with questions about this event.
