flatscreen DVD: Ayanna Jolivet Mccloud

Opening Friday March 9, 2007 from 6pm-10pm
March 9 - March 31, 2007

Erica Lord grew up between Alaska and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. An inter-disciplinary artist, Erica works with themes of race, ethnicity, and gender roles, as well as concepts regarding memory and the idea of home. Her exploration of these universal aspects are in relation to her constantly changing identity, a shifting self whose qualities seem to surface and diminish, depending on her context or present environment. Erica currently serves on the Indigenous Arts Action Alliance (IA3), a non-profit organization that has supported bringing Native artists to the Venice Biennale for the past 8 years, has had her creative writing published in Red Ink magazine and has exhibited at the Montana Museum of Art and Culture, the Carl Gorman Museum (CA), and the Two Rivers Gallery in Minneapolis. She received her BA from Carleton College (Northfield, MN) in liberal arts/studio arts in 2001 and her MFA in the sculpture department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
