What Tribe Project ~ Opens Sept 5th


Self Help Graphics presents THE WHAT TRIBE PROJECT, An exhibition curated by Douglas MILES of Apache Skateboards. Opening Reception is Thursday, September 5, at 7PM.

ARTISTS: Eriberto Oriol / Mike Miller / Thomas Breeze Marcus / Werewulf Micah Wesley / Jasmin Rosales / Joel Rage 1 Garcia / Leslie Gutierrez-Saiz / Douglas Miles / Jonathan Nelson / Avis Charley / Angel Diaz / Luke Dorsett / Katie Beltran / Joseph Sanchez / Brandan Odums / and MORE

The What TRIBE project is art designed to discuss negative stereotypical images of Native Americans in media and other diverse cultures. It features the work of over 15 artists including seminal Los Angeles photographers, Eriberto Oriol and Mike Miller. Stereotypical racist images make their way into media via fashionistas, film makers and brands in search of new edgy content from “other” cultures. Cultural appropriation then takes place at an alarming rate leading to demeaning stereotype(s). What Tribe aims to counter stereotypical images from the American pop cultural visual landscape. Los Angeles being a media capitol is the perfect place to exhibit these works. What TRIBE aims to promote creativity not controversy, discussion not discrimination, and understanding, not apathy.

Self Help Graphics will unveil a collectible limited edition serigraph print of Eriberto Oriol and Douglas Miles’ collaboration piece, ” Cowboys & Indians” at the opening (above).
