The Walker’s platform for local makers, Mn Artists brings its online network live and into the museum. Join guest curator Essma Imady, a Twin Cities–based installation and film artist, to ask: who can art speak for? To investigate the question of representation, artists in Minnesota—including Preston Drum, Leila Awadallah, John Keston, and Niky Motekallem—will each connect with artists in countries affected by the recent travel ban. What is the result of creating an artwork “by proxy”? Can the work by the local artist speak for the artist abroad? Connect with local artists of all disciplines and engage with the questions driving the Minnesota arts community.
