Asst. Professor Tom Jones' Encountering Cultures series captures the Rendezvous, historical re-enactments of the French fur trade in North America. This subculture has utilized and adopted the material culture of Native Americans, often posing and presenting themselves dressed as Indians. Through turning the camera lens back on these re-enactors, Jones explores their romanticization of Native American life. The exhibition may also include a group of related vintage photographs from Jones's personal collection. Visit Jone's website here.
The opening reception will take place from 5:30-7:30pm, with the artist's talk at 6:30pm.
Visit the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters website for more information on the exhibit.
