The MCAD community and general public are invited to help Gina Adams cut fabric letters for one of her Broken Treaty Quilts. Participants are welcome to discuss the impactful consequences of the treaties and to learn more about Adams’ contemporary art practice.

Adams's cross-media, hybrid studio work features the reuse of antique quilts and broken treaties between the United States and Native American tribes, sculpture, ceramics, painting, printmaking, and drawing. Adams received her BFA from the Maine College of Art and her MFA from the University of Kansas. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and resides in many public and private collections. The noted international art critic Lucy Lippard wrote the introduction to Adams’ 2015 solo exhibition Its Honor Is Here Pledged, which launched her art career and body of work Broken Treaty Quilts into a new contemporary art arena. In 2016, Adams was a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow, and had Its Honor Is Hereby Pledged exhibition in Boulder, Colorado at Naropa University’s White Cube Gallery. In 2017 Adams presented and exhibited at the AIW Conference at Goldsmiths College, University of London, England, followed by an exhibition at the Bemis Center of Contemporary Art titled Monarch’s curated by Risa Puleo. In 2018 Adams was Artist-in-Residence at Dartmouth College and a Kohler Arts Industry/Residency. Adams currently lives in Vancouver and teaches at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Four Stories: Gina Adams, Megan Pahmier, Nirmal Raja, James Stephens. On view in MCAD's Main gallery from January 21–March 1, 2020.
