Primitive Edge Student Gallery
Primitive Edge features what is destined to be the first of many gallery exhibitions by talented IAIA students. Here you can see the depth of expression and the height of talents coming to fruition on the IAIA campus.
Our gallery name, “Primitive Edge,” is itself a metaphor for the work that is exhibited throughout the year in our gallery and at 10 annual presentations, including the annual Student Winter Show, the Graduation Exhibit, as well as Studio Arts and New Media Arts Senior Thesis exhibits. Primitive alluding to the stereotypes of the past, while Edge points us to the ever-expanding border of Contemporary Native Art.
Readings by graduating Creative Writing students are held in the gallery, exhibits by Indigenous Liberal Studies students are presented annually, and curation and exhibition installations by the Museum Studies students make our gallery an ever-changing exploration of the arts in all its many facets. We welcome the community to come and share in this vibrant artistic experience.
