Event Description

Artist Frohawk Two Feathers will lead a narrative walk-through of his solo exhibition at Hamilton College’s Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art. Opening reception follows from 4-6 p.m.

“Frohawk Two Feathers - You Can Fall: The War of the Mourning Arrows (An Introduction to the Americas and a Requiem for Willem Ferdinand)”
Los Angeles-based artist Frohawk Two Feathers is known for inventive and complex narratives that re-imagine eighteenth-century history. This installment takes place in the area that is today New York and New Jersey and introduces figures drawn from the Lenape/Delaware and Iroquois tribes, adding to Two Feathers’s previously established cast of characters.

A mash-up of real and invented history, the art of Two Feathers reflects the past and the present—traditional European portraiture, Native American art, folk art, and contemporary urban culture—and presents a new perspective on colonialism, imperialism, and racism. Featured characters of varied ethnicities offer an alternative to the Eurocentric version of history.
