“Portrait of an Indigenous Womxn [Removed]” by Anna Tsouhlarakis

November 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST


Join the National Portrait Gallery for the second of two live performances of “Portrait of an Indigenous Womxn [Removed]” by artist Anna Tsouhlarakis. Drawing awareness to the Missing or Murdered Indigenous Persons Movement, Tsouhlarakis will create a sculpture onsite that features existing posters of missing or murdered Indigenous women. Accompanied by a singer with a hand drum, Tsouhlarakis will carry the sculpture through the museum, intentionally passing portraits and galleries that reflect the history and representation of Native Americans – or lack thereof. Tsouhlarakis will then position the sculpture in dialogue with a specific portrait. A gallery educator will remain nearby until 6 p.m. to answer visitor questions. The Nov. 5 performance will pay tribute to Ella Mae Begay and Sumi Juan. Free—Registration Encouraged.
