Artist Talk: Joseph M. Sanchez

  • IMA School Baker St Wells, BC, V0K 2R0 Canada (map)

Join us at the IMA school to listen to Toni Onley Artists Project mentor Joseph M. Sanchez speak about his work. This event is by donation. 7pm at the IMA School.

Joseph M. Sánchez is an American artist from Trinidad, Colorado, by way of the White Mountain Apache Reservation and Taos Pueblo. A leader in Indigenous and Chicano arts since the 1970s, Joseph has worked with hundreds of artists creating work, developing exhibitions, and advocating for the rights of minority artists, most importantly with the Professional Native Indian Artists (Native Group of Seven). A spiritual surrealist, Joseph's work is sensual and dreamlike, provocative and thought-inducing. Still producing work, and exhibiting across the United States and Canada, Joseph M Sánchez is simultaneously a community elder, and an instigator at the front lines of the battle for the creation of art and how we define it as a culture.
