Douglas Miles: Future Intercept
August 6, 2021 - August 21, 2021
In coordination with the busiest month in Santa Fe, August 2021, known worldwide for the celebration of Native American art markets all throughout our city, Obscura Gallery presents the photographic exhibition Future Intercept with gallery artist Douglas Miles. San Carlos Apache-Akimel O’odham artist Douglas Miles’s artistic work is rooted in Apache history and deeply engaged with the world of contemporary pop culture. His latest photographic composite series, Future Intercept, transverses through time, rejecting western exotic, white gaze, stereotypes of Native people in America as a way to re-imagine the future of Indigenous and Native communities. Through the exploration of Futurism, we are presented with a narrative that looks back on a distraught past to reconstruct and foretell an impending future. By bending and folding the past and future as it collides, Miles’s photographic work speaks on lineage and legacy within a community whose roots are deeply embedded across the Americas.
The exhibition is on view August 6–21, 2021.
