Milwaukee, WI – WPCA is pleased to announce No More Stolen Sisters, an exhibit curated by Teresa Faris, and Valaria Tatera which brings together artworks representing the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, girls and 2 spirits. The exhibition will showcase technically diverse artworks of indigenous artists and allies addressing a range of experiences surrounding the violence against and loss of indigenous women, girls and 2 spirits. Materials will range from works on paper, mixed-media installation, metal, clay, quillwork, textile and paint.

The issue of missing & murdered indigenous women, girls and two spirit ( MMIWG2S) is gaining national attention due to, among many efforts, the recent election of Deb Haaland and her initiatives surrounding this issue. Walker’s Point Center of the Arts was chosen as the platform for this project because Wisconsin is home to eleven (11) registered tribal communities and the adjacent Highway 90 acts as a main corridor for missing persons. It is vital that the issue of MMIWG2S is given a voice in this region.

The exhibit is being organized with the curatorial assistance of Professor Teresa Faris, a faculty member in the Department of Art + Design and artist, and artist/activist Valaria Tatera, an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewas.

Exhibiting artists include: Andrea Ene Narno, Celeste Contreras, Chloé Allyn, Chrystal Tourtillot Lepcier, CK Ledesma, Dakota Mace, Elias Not Afraid, Harmony Hill, JJ Otero, John Hitchcock, Karen Ann Hoffman, Kimberly M Blaeser, Lorena Lazard, Monica Gilles-BringsYellow, Niki JohnsonScott Hill, Sebastian Carre, Teresa Faris, Tom Jones, Valaria Tatera and Wanesia Misquadace.
