Artist in Residence

Broken Treaty letter cutting sessions

Above photo: Over the course of the summer, Gina Adams (standing), an artist-in-residence, has been using the text of broken treaties between the United States and Native American tribes as the basis for a community art project. Working with Dartmouth community members, Adams cuts out letters and posts the text of treaties in the windows of the Hopkins Center. (Photo by Kevin Yang ’20)

This was a performance-community art project where summer term ’18 Artist-in-Residence, Gina Adams, hosted Broken Treaty letter cutting sessions at Barrows Rotunda in the HOP and invited everyone to help. She worked on the "Treaty of Wyandot 1785." Once cut, the letters were be placed in the Rotunda's windows so that they could be read on the outside. This past Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, was the last session, and now Gina has the letters in her studio at the Black Family Visual Arts Center where she will assemble them in the Broken Treaty Quilt.

Letter Cutting Sessions with Gina Adams

Gina Adam started a new performance-community art project as part of her artist-in-residence at Dartmouth.  She is cutting letters for the Treaty of Wyandot 1785 at Barrows Rotunda in the HOP and inviting everyone to help. Once cut, the letters will be placed in the Rotunda windows so that they can be read on the outside. After completion Gina will take the letters to her studio at the Black Family Visual Arts Center and will assemble them in the Broken Treaty Quilt.

On Friday, July 6, Dale Turner, Associate Professor of Government and of Native American Studies, arranged for The Indigenous conference attendees from Australia and New Zealand to come to the Artist-in-Residence studio to help Gina cut letters. They worked together from noon to 3 p.m. and shared a wonderful creative time and interesting conversations.

Gina will continue working in the Rotunda, everyone is welcome to stop by and help her. What a wonderful opportunity to be part of this amazing project!
