Andrea Carlson is an artist who works primarily with painting and drawing. Her work draws on her Anishinaabe heritage and questions institutional authority over the objects that they possess and display by citing entangled cultural narratives. Her current research activities include Indigenous Futurism and assimilation metaphors in film. Carlson was a 2008 McKnight fellow and a 2017 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors fellow. Her work has been acquired by a series of institutions.
