Arctic Highways: Unbounded Indigenous People

Next February, the American Swedish Institute will host Arctic Highways: Unbounded Indigenous People, a special traveling exhibition featuring the artwork and handcrafts of 12 Indigenous artists from Sápmi and North America that shares stories of Indigenous People who live on different continents yet regard themselves as kindred spirits. Each artist tells their own stories, through their own forms of expression, inviting opportunities to explore what it means to be unbounded—not just for indigenous People, but for all of us.

Curated by Indigenous artists Tomas Colbengtson, Gunvor Guttorm, Dan Jåma and Britta Marakatt-Labba, Arctic Highways will include their own works alongside those of artists Matti Aikio, Marja Helander, Laila Susanna Kuhmunen, Olof Marsja, Máret Ánne Sara, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Maureen Gruben, and Meryl McMaster.

Arctic Highways: Unbounded Indigenous People opens February 4, 2024, at the American Swedish Institute.
