Now on view at the Museum of Russian Art until March 14, 2021
Dynamics of Russian Colonialism in Alaska, the first solo exhibition of work by Marlena Myles, focuses on the intersection of immigrant and Native peoples in North America. These digitally created works bring to light the commonly unknown history of interactions between Russian explorers, settlers, traders, clergy, and Alaska Natives before the Alaskan territory was sold to the United States in 1867. These are important reflections, much needed in the contemporary United States and Minnesota, that acknowledge indigenous histories.
