Founded in 2011 by artists Michelle Ponce and Damian Jim, Ziindi is an independent publication based out of Phoenix, Arizona featuring modern indigenous art. Its mission is to inspire the next generation of artists through arts education. By supporting and creating projects that showcase the distinctive perspective of modern indigenous artists, Ziindi strengthens the connections between artists and their communities.
Volume 1.2: A Contemporary Female Arts Showcase is a collection of works by talented artists from the Southwest region. Celebrating the delicate balance between traditional and modern life: an exquisite and sometimes harsh manifestation of their experience. From a photographic portrait of a sacred celebration, to a sobering visual commentary on the challenging aspects of modern life, the images in this edition are a way to explore the modern indigenous experience.
This showcase is made possible by the artists who dared to share their world, by the instrumental collaboration of the Navajo Nation Museum and Ziindi, and by you, our community. Thank you for supporting artists of different genres in your community.
