Here are four terrific art openings.
Opening: “Bring Her Home 2019”
Where it's at: All My Relations Gallery, 1414 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis
What it's about: A year ago, All My Relations Gallery presented a powerful exhibition, curated by local artist Angela Two Stars, themed around the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) movement. The exhibit featured work by both established and emerging Indigenous artists that touched on sexual exploitation and violence that has reached crisis levels in the U.S. and Canada.
This year, Two Stars will again curate a new “Bring Her Home” exhibition, featuring a new selection of artists: Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, Karen Goulet, Angela Babby, Wade Patton, Leah Yellowbird, and others. The exhibition opening follows the MMIW March, which happens earlier in the day. The march, organized by a coalition of Native organizations, begins at 11 a.m. at the Minneapolis American Indian Center.
Why you should go: Last year's exhibition wove personal narratives with politics for an impressive and heartbreaking show. With the same curator at the helm, the new exhibition should be moving, and get people thinking about what needs to shift in our society to protect Native and Indigenous women.
When: 6-8 p.m. Thursday
