American Indian artist and activist Jimmie Durhamombines found objects and natural materials and incorporates text to expose Western-centric views and prejudices hidden in language, objects, and institutions. Calling himself an “interventionist,” Durham is oftentimes critical in his analysis of society but with a distinctive wit that is simultaneously generous and humorous. See through-provoking sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, video, and performance created from 1970 to the present.
