VIDEO: Check Out the First Episode of ‘Colored Criticism’

By Sameer Rao Jun 15, 2015

Always wanted to learn about art of all varieties, but had no idea where to begin? Check out "Colored Criticism", a new web documentary series from Tiffany Bradley* that takes a multi-racial and young-adult-focused lens to art and creates an experience to learn about new exhibitions or works.

In the first episode (which you can check out above), prominent Nakoda/Lakota feminist activist and Save Wįyąbi Project co-founder Lauren Chief Elk joins Bradley in an accessible and thought-provoking look at "The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky", an exhibit which showed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this spring and wrestles with age-old questions about Native American appropriation and representation. 

To mark the new series’s launch, Chief Elk will be answering questions for a live Twitterchat at 2p ET tomorrow. Join the chat at @colorcriticism and use the hashtag #digitalnatives (flipping a term used by marketers to describe Millenial consumers) to ask questions about the exhibit and contemporary representation in Native arts. 

*Note: Bradley is a former employee of Race Forward, and Colorlines News Editor Aura Bogado serves as a member of the project’s advisory board.
