Navajo artist and community activist Will Wilson engages the historical relationship of photography to the colonization of Native North Americans. For him, photography and installation become tools of decolonization.

Wilson's work will be on view in the RCAH's LookOut! Gallery from October 29 through November 19, and an opening reception will be held in the LookOut! from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30.

At 7 p.m. on October 30, Will Wilson will give his artist lecture in the RCAH Theater (C20 Snyder Hall).

Wilson's visit is co-sponsored by Art | Art History | Design, American Indian Studies, the RCAH, and Lyman Briggs College.
