Demian DinéYazhi, an indigenous Diné (Navajo) transdisciplinary artist from Portland Oregon, is the winner of the 2017 Brink Award. As a guest curator for September at Bridge Productions, DinéYazi has brought together the work of photographer Kali Spitzer, ceramicist and sculptor Lia Greisser, and photo, video, and performance artist Nika Kaiser. The work of these three young artists seems married by an interest in effusive form that revels in its own embodiment. The title implies vulnerability, the most difficult thing to cultivate in times of violence and uncertainty. I can't wait to see how these artists fill the space.
