Indigenous artists have largely been underrepresented at major museums. Will Wilson is head of the photography program at Santa Fe Community College and a citizen of the Navajo Nation, and he talks with host Krys Boyd about a collection of the works of more than 30 indigenous artists who have used their lenses to chronicle issues of identity, culture loss and representation. The exhibit, “Speaking with Light: Contemporary Indigenous Photography,” is on view at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and is co-curated by John Rohrbach, senior curator of photographs.
