Chris Cornelius (studio:indigenous) and Garrick Imatani (Pacific Northwest College of Art)
Professor Cornelius, an enrolled member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, focuses his research and practice on the architectural translation of culture; in particular, American Indian culture. He is the founding principal of studio:indigenous, a design and consulting practice serving American Indian clients and an associate professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Garrick Imatani is an artist who uses embodied perception, fabrication, and performance to think through the role of landscape, collective history, and racialized bodies within the United States. Imatani’s process frequently stems from research, site visits and collaboration, resulting in sculptures, installations, drawings, photographs, videos, and public projects exhibited nationally and internationally. Imatani, associate professor and chair of the Foundation program at Pacific Northwest College of Art, recently completed a commissioned public art project for the University of Oregon’s Straub Hall.
