Northern Plains Indian Artist Residency Recipient Art Installation in Day Gallery
Luger will present an artist talk Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. in room 172 of the Warren M. Lee Center. An artist’s closing reception is scheduled for Oct. 11 from 5-7 p.m. in the John A. Day Gallery.
Luger was raised on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, and he is of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian and Norwegian descent. In response to timely and site-specific issues, Luger produces multi-pronged projects that take many forms.
Through monumental installations that incorporate ceramics, video, sound, fiber, steel and cut-paper, Luger interweaves performance and political action to communicate stories about 21st century indigeneity. He combines critical cultural analysis with dedication and respect for the diverse materials, environments and communities he engages.
His work has been exhibited internationally in the Autry Museum of the American West, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and Art Mûr Montreal.
“Future Ancestral Technologies” is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. For more information, contact Kate Skelly at 605-677-3177, or visit the University Art Galleries website.
