Gina will give an overview of Contemporary Hybrid bodies of artwork including discoveries from her University of Kansas graduate MFA Thesis exhibition "Survival: Zhaabwiiwin" and how I developed and continue to create the Broken Treaty Quilts and other bodies of work in my artistic practice. Gina will share research from her Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship SARF from 2016 and the bodies of artwork created from the discoveries she made while being a Smithsonian Fellow that continue to this day.
