FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The exhibition "Make Architecture Indigenous Again" will be on display through March 21 in the Fred and Mary Smith Exhibition Gallery in Vol Walker Hall on the University of Arkansas campus.  

A gallery talk will take place at noon Wednesday, Jan. 16, and an opening reception will be held at 5:15 p.m. Jan. 16.

This exhibition features the work of Chris Cornelius, founding principal of studio:indigenous based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cornelius is also an associate professor of architecture in the Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin.

Cornelius' work is concerned with rendering visible contemporary indigenous culture. The exhibition includes architecture, spaces and artifacts that dismantle the stereotypical regime that surrounds "Native American" design and art.

The work may not contain expected patterns or colors but is rooted in indigenous thinking. The included pieces represent a trajectory of work that includes drawings, models, installation photos and speculations that are intended to present contemporary indigenous spaces.

Admission to the exhibition is free. The exhibition gallery is located on the first floor of Vol Walker Hall, and it is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
