Virtual Artist Discussion with Valaria Tatera

Join us for our artist discussion about their work and who they are as artists. There will be a live Q&A at the end of each discussion.

Valaria Tatera is a Wisconsin based installation artist, activist and lecturer whose work investigates the intersection of ethnicity, gender, commerce, and the environment. An enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Valaria explores self identity and contemporary Indigenous issues such as the impact of colonization on Indigenous Erasure, Visibility and Resilience. Her intention is “for the work to hold visual and personal space for statistics that often erase the individual”. Valaria earned an MFA in 3-D from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, M.A. and B.F.A. in Ceramics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She is a recipient of the 2021 Foundation for Contemporary Art micro grant and the 2022 Mary Nohl fellowship for the established artist category. She has exhibited regionally and nationally in galleries and Museums. Recently, her work was featured at the Museum of Wisconsin Art, Trout Museum of Contemporary Art, RAHR Museum, All My Relations Gallery, Sweet Briar College, Truax Gallery and the Wisconsin Biennial. Currently, her work is at Charles Allis Museum, Madeline Island Museum, Mitchell Museum of Indian of the American Indian and will be at the Haggerty Museum.
