"This Is the Day" highlights new developments in the artist’s genre-bridging practice. The exhibition features over 50 works made between 2014 and 2018 including intricately beaded wall hangings and punching bags, paintings on canvas and rawhide, ceramics, garments, and a new video debuting in this exhibition. The film follows Macy, a trans Choctaw woman living on a reservation in rural Mississippi, melding documentary and fantastical elements in a way that harkens back to independent films from the 1980s and 90s. 

The exhibit will be on display through September 29.
