Hear Her: Works by Dyani White Hawk
Dyani White Hawk (Sičáŋǧu Lakota) merges modernist art strategies with Indigenous art forms, highlighting the intersections of artistic and national histories. Hear Her features mixed media paintings, photographs, and prints, as well as an eight-channel video installation titled LISTEN that introduces audiences to some of the Indigenous languages of this continent while illustrating the divide between the general American public and Native nations.
The work promotes visibility and humanization as important factors in fighting the epidemic of disappearances and murders of Native women — and about the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives Movement (MMIWR) aimed at stemming the tide of this humanitarian crisis.
