Alum has solo show at Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art
Alum Duane Slick’s (M.F.A., ‘90) first solo exhibition is underway at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, Connecticut. “Duane Slick: The Coyote Makes the Sunset Better” brings 90 works — paintings, prints, photographs and video – together to explore Slick’s thirty year career. The selected works include the artist’s ongoing series that reference the coyote as a seminal figure in indigenous culture, as well as paintings that reflect both the landscape of Slick’s upbringing in Iowa and the symbology and beliefs of his heritage as a citizen of both the Meskwaki (Fox of Iowa) and Ho-Chunk (Nebraska) Nations.
Listen to Slick discuss this exhibition on Soundcloud.
“Duane Slick: The Coyote Makes the Sunset Better” is on view until May 8, 2022
