Five different galleries are teaming up for a joint exhibition featuring 10 indigenous artists. Taking place during American Indian Month, the Twin Cities-wide event is a testament to the strength of the local community, showcasing our wealth of creative spaces nurturing Native American and indigenous artists who have roots in Latin American countries. Hosted by All My Relations Arts, the American Indian Movement Interpretive Center, Two Rivers Gallery, Electric Machete Studios, and the new Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center (the event is part of their ongoing grand opening), “For Directions” highlights artists working with themes such as identity, decolonization, resistance, and survival. Saturday’s gallery crawl begins at 4 p.m. on Franklin Avenue, where the three Minneapolis venues are located. At 6 p.m., a bus will take folks to St. Paul for an opening reception at Electric Machete on the West Side, and departs again for Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center in Dayton’s Bluff at 7:15 p.m. The bus heads back to Minneapolis at 8:30 p.m. Featured artists include Todd Bordeaux, Neto Ybarra, Andre Perez, Holly Young, Karen Goulet, and Xilam Balam.
