Engaging the Future: Conversations with Goodman Fellowship Artists--Duhon James (Navajo)
The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture (MIAC) invites you to the next iteration of our new lecture series, Engaging the Future: Conversations with Goodman Fellowship Artists. This series is an opportunity for our MIAC community to become better acquainted with our Goodman Fellows through hour-long Zoom visits to their home studios. They will bring us up-to-date on what they have been doing since receiving the Fellowship.

Duhon James was born in Tuba City, Arizona, on the Navajo Nation. He is a recent alumnus from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics and printmaking. In 2011, he received his Associate of Arts in Fine Arts at Dine College, Tsaile, Arizona.

James has shown his works at Eggman and Walrus Gallery Emporium in Santa Fe and Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery at the Institute of American Indian Arts. He now resides in Ganado, Arizona.

Artist Statement: “My artworks visualize the Navajo lifestyle and include a rotating cast of stars, corn, water, teeth, Hogan, and universe. I have observed the cosmos through the seasons and listened to stories from my grandma and parents. My prints reflect my culture, the role of women, the role of prayer, the role of time. Time is a never-ending cycle. I muse about our place in the universe and the afterlife. Will we all become stars like the star people?”

Conversations with Goodman Fellows will continue on a monthly basis throughout the year, generally the fourth Wednesday of every month, at 10:00 am. Please watch MIAC’s newsletter and social media for future dates. The series will also be available on the Museum’s You Tube Channel.

Nov 17, 2021 10:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
