Sigils for Travelers of I-94 | Andrea Carlson
August 28 – October 31

“I squint my eyes at buildings and imagine what the land looks like underneath, that is Indigenous Futurism” - Andrea Carlson

Drawing on her Ojibwe heritage, Carlson creates images that “celebrate the joy of Indigenous people found in places that we’ve made for ourselves, in places that were necessitated because of our exclusion elsewhere.” The exhibition title incorporates the Latin meaning of Sigil—medicine or poison and the space along Interstate highway 94.
