NACDI and All My Relations Arts are pleased to present “Inde Wiisagendam (My Heart Hurts),” a solo show by Laura Youngbird.

Light refreshments and food will be provided. All are welcome.
“Inde Wiisagendam (My Heart Hurts)” is a collection of multilayered, multifaceted monotypes from artist Laura Youngbird (Minnesota Chippewa, Grand Portage Band). Using the dress as a metaphor, her work addresses a wide range of social issues, injustices and biases. Through mixed media — combining drawing, painting and prints — Laura explores the dress as a consistent and important symbol in her work, as this simple garment contains layer upon layer of meaning.
The works in this series examine mixed emotions themes such as common thread, loose ends and threadbare. Inde Wiisagendam will welcome both older pieces by Laura, as well as never-before-exhibited works, showcasing the artist’s depth of range.
This exhibition is presented with Public Art Saint Paul as part of the Wakpa Triennial
