Nicholas Galanin

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

Nicholas Galanin is a Tlingit/Unangax̂ multidisciplinary artist based in Sitka, Alaska. Galanin’s practice includes embedded incisive observation and critical thought, and investigates and expands intersections of culture and concept in form, image, and sound. The works are vessels of knowledge, culture, and technology⁠—inherently political, generous, unflinching, and poetic.
