Crystal to be featured in DECOLONIZE ALASKA - National Touring Exhibition

"Decolonizing Alaska celebrates artists who face the future as colorful, resilient

innovators, redefining Alaska art on their own terms. This exhibit is not a

comprehensive representation of Alaska art and/or artists addressing

decolonization.  It is an exhibit of artists who self-identify with this theme and it is

constrained by exhibition space and the limitations of my own exposure as a

curator.  I can say with confidence that these artists are shaping their own

stories, challenging and expanding historic definitions of Alaska art. Further,

these artists engage in a debate about how museums and galleries should tell

the story of colonization. As Alaskans, they join the global debates of cultural

theorists who challenge the ways museum and gallery spaces continue to

perpetuate colonization by demarcating specific spaces for indigenous art."
