About

Trickster Art Gallery (TAG) is a Native arts institution dedicated to meeting the needs of artists by providing a vehicle for artistic expression in all disciplines and at all levels by taking a role in the cultivation, exhibition, and dissemination of contemporary Indigenous American art. -Why a contemporary emphasis? Native people have always been placed in a perpetual state of nostalgia. Trickster Art Gallery provides a different aesthetic, showcasing contemporary Native art that places an evolving culture and social issues in the forefront. The idea behind Trickster Art Gallery is to address the state of Native America today while sharing thoughts of terminology for the sake of projecting positive images beyond romantic iconography -Trickster Art Gallery programs raise public awareness and advance ideals of tolerance and diversity by combating stereotypes and deconstructing predetermined imagery that has long defined Native Americans with one generalized cultural aesthetic. They are created by rural and urban-based Native American communities for the larger community. This provides a necessary inclusive platform for cultural exchange as we continue to celebrate Native America in Illinois
