Engaging the Future: Conversations with Goodman Fellowship Artists—Terran LastGun (Piikani [Blackfeet])
The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture (MIAC) invites you to the first iteration of our new lecture series, Engaging the Future: Conversations with Goodman Fellowship Artists.

This series will be 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.

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.

Terran Last Gun (b. 1989) is a Piikani (Blackfeet) visual artist and printmaker. Sah’kwiinaamah’kaa (Last Gun) was born and raised in Browning, Montana, where the Rocky Mountains greet the Great Plains. As a citizen of the Piikani Nation in Montana— who are members of the Blackfoot Confederacy that includes Siksika, Kainai, and Piikani nations of Alberta, Canada—Last Gun is contributing to an ancient Indigenous North American narrative. He often references the visual iconographic vocabulary of Blackfoot painted lodges to explore the varying relationships between nature, sky, cultural narratives, and recollections interpreted in reduced geometric aesthetics and vibrant color harmonies.

Last Gun received his A.S. degree from the Blackfeet Community College in 2011 and his BFA in Museum Studies and AFA in Studio Arts from the Institute of American Indian Arts in 2016. He is a recipient of awards from the First Peoples Fund, 2020 Artist in Business Leadership Fellowship; Santa Fe Art Institute, 2018 Story Maps Fellowship; and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, 2016 Goodman Aspiring Artist Fellowship. He currently lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

May 26, 2021 10:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
