Consilience: Curated by Brian Fleetwood

Consilience started as a solo exhibition for Brian Fleetwood (Mvskoke Creek), a Santa Fe jewelry artist who teaches at the Institute of American Indian Arts. The scope of the show quickly expanded, as Fleetwood’s transdisciplinary, highly collaborative philosophy guided the curatorial process. Fleetwood selected mentors who helped shape his artistic path, and recent students who he has ushered into dedicated creative practices.

 

The result is a biographical display that incorporates Fleetwood’s wearable explorations of biology and ecology, embedded within a larger web of artists who are part of his story.
