Diné (Navajo) artist Melissa Cody, a fourth-generation weaver, creates intricate tapestries balancing the traditional, historical, and contemporary. Cody fuses classical nineteenth-century Diné weaving patterns with modern elements such as digital graphics reminiscent of early Nintendo video games, to produce vibrant, bold, and dynamic geometric overlays challenging the false binaries so often imposed upon Indigenous peoples. Working on both traditional and digital looms, Cody’s weavings demonstrate the poten- tial for combining multiple technologies, art production, and a critical understanding of history for Indigenous survivance. Free entry and open to all.
