Dementia Americana
Dementia Americana is an exhibition of new artworks from three contemporary Native American Artists:

2/1-
Cannupa Hanksa Luger, Marty Two Bulls Jr., and Micheal Two Bulls. The artists explore the state of American
aesthetics and the relationship to the current socio-political climate through mixed media, ceramic
sculpture, printmaking and assemblage.

3/31 Dementia Americana is the chronic disorder of memory, personality changes and impaired reasoning of
American culture and its interpretation of history. The America that these three artists find themselves in
is plagued by the aforementioned disease. A culture filled with contradictory narratives of freedom and
oppression; citizen and immigrant; liberalism and conservatism. This disease affects the way America
analyzes and interprets its own history causing it to often times repeat its dark past of genocide, thievery,
slavery and discrimination. Each artist takes their own unique approach at addressing these contradictory
narratives through their artwork with hopes of providing an alternate approach to evaluating and
counteracting the Dementia Americana that plagues their nation.

This exhibition is sponsored by Bold Nebraska and The Lincoln Arts Council.
