An exhibition presenting new works in a variety of mediums that offer a meditation on the nomadic and intersectional contemporary condition that involves a social network of individuals of different ages, residency status, class, and race.
New York City-based Native American artist Brad Kahlhamer first exhibited at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) in 2004 with the hugely successful exhibition Let’s Walk West. For his second SMoCA exhibition, over 15 years later, Kahlhamer draws his inspiration from the ethnographic experience of “field-work” at swap meets throughout the Southwest, which he has engaged with since his childhood in Arizona. The social and cultural space of the swap meet models and fuels Kahlhamer’s artistic practice in varying mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance and music, as well as a new commission. At the cross-section of Native American cultures and his own culture as an artist, Swap Meet becomes Kahlhamer’s meditation on a nomadic and intersectional contemporary condition that involves a social network of individuals of different ages, residency status, class and race.
Guest curated by Natasha Boas, Ph.D. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of performances, a catalog, and a new major commission by SMoCA.
