Raven Chacon: For Zitkála-Šá Performances

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Raven Chacon’s For Zitkála-Ša

Experience Raven Chacon’s visual compositions from the For Zitkála-Ša (2018) series through live performance. 

Raven Chacon created For Zitkála-Ša, a series of lithographs of musical arrangements dedicated to contemporary American Indian, First Nations, and Mestiza women working in music performance, composition, and sound art. Chacon envisioned the scores as portraits of the women and how they navigate the twenty-first century. The title of the series refers to the Yankton Dakota composer and musician Zitkála-Šá, who lived from 1876 to 1938.
