Everyone Says I Look Like My Mother
A Pop-Up Installation and Conversation with Meghann O’Brien (Jaad Kuujus), Andy Everson, Kate Hennessy, Hannah Turner, Doenja Oogjes, and Laura Allen.

Bard Graduate Center presents a triptych of pieces by Meghann O’Brien (Jaad Kuujus), a contemporary Indigenous weaver from British Columbia of Haida and Kwakwaka’wakw descent, working in collaboration with a team of anthropologists, technologists, and artists. This installation—including Sky Blanket, a robe created by O’Brien with contributions from First Nations artists Jay Simeon and Andy Everson; Wrapped in the Cloud, a digital animation critically engaging the photogrammetry and 3D-modeling process documenting Sky Blanket; and an untitled robe digitally woven on a TC2 loom materializing an instance of Sky Blanket’s digital modeling process—collectively illustrates the complex art of translation across media and material, kinship and teaching, the past and the future.

An Indigenous Arts in Transition lecture.

Join us starting at 4 pm for a special viewing of the works and stay for a conversation at 6 pm with O’Brien along with Everson, museum anthropologists Kate Hennessy and Hannah Turner, and design researcher Doenja Oogjes. Moderated by curator Laura Allen.
