yəhaw̓ / Indigenous Art Exhibition / Call for Artists

Submission fee

For more information visit:


yəhaw̓ is an open call exhibition celebrating the depth and diversity of Indigenous art made in the Pacific Northwest. This show will be held in the newly renovated King Street Station in downtown Seattle in November 2018. All Indigenous creatives living in our region are invited to participate.

Everyone who applies will have work included in the exhibition!

We are giving up curatorial control through the open call process to empower Native artisans to retake ownership of their representation. By creating an opportunity for the community to speak for itself through a wide range of individual and sometimes conflicting perspectives, we aim to unsettle assumptions and begin a critical new dialogue about what Native American art is and can be. We hope yəhaw̓ will reflect a nuanced, inclusive, and community-driven narrative that firmly establishes Native creatives as belonging in the here and now.
