Exploring 

Diné Art.

Following a year in which traditional concepts of place on the Navajo Nation have been disrupted or abolished by the pandemic—including ceremonies; formal art markets; tourism; parades; rodeos; flea markets; family gatherings; and casinos—this two-day virtual conference asked the question what is Diné artmaking and “placeknowing” in 2021? Seeking to draw on a wide variety of voices, including informal sellers; photographers; painters; curators; as well as Diné students; this conference sought to open a broad discussion on the leadership role of artists and designers on the Navajo Nation in 2021. The conference asked us to consider the question: What is Diné Art Today? A goal of the conference was to help other Native communities (especially those served by tribal colleges) to think about the role of artmaking and placemaking following the world-wide pandemic.

 

The conference was virtual, free, and open to the public.
