In this online presentation, Lindsey Willow Smith and Veronica Cook Williamson will provide an introductory glimpse into the Clements’ new online exhibit: 'No, not even for Picture': Re-Examining the Native Midwest and Tribes’ Relations to the History of Photography. This exhibit seeks to re-historicize and re-humanize the contexts, subjects, and circumstances leading to the production of the Richard Pohrt Jr. Collection of Native American Photography. Using examples from the exhibit to speak about their motivations and goals as co-curators, the two will touch on themes of photography as a tool of settler colonialism, photographic assertions of sovereignty and agency, and raise questions about (in)visibility and voice. They will also discuss how the transition to remote work affected the exhibit design and their approaches.
