Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit Exhibit: Midnight at the Fireworks Stand

In her solo exhibition Midnight at the Fireworks Stand, artist Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit considers the ways in which western contact continues to shape Indigenous communities, from potlaches to the poverty-to-prison pipeline.

Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world. – Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit

Alison Bremner Nax̲shag̲eit is a multidisciplinary artist from Yakutat. She is believed to be the first Tlingit woman to carve and raise a totem pole. Bremner studied under master artist David R. Boxley and David A. Boxley in Kingston, Washington. Her mediums include painting, woodcarving, regalia and digital collage. In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalization of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use.

Midnight at the Fireworks Stand is on exhibit through January 7.

Alison Bremner Naxshageit is one of six artists selected for the Alaska State Museum 2020-2023 Solo Artist Exhibition Series along with artists Ben HuffSonya Kelliher-CombsGail Priday, Jannah Sexton-Atkins, and Mitch Watley.
