Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest explores the rich history and artistry of Indigenous tattooing of the Northwest coast.
Photographs, cultural belongings, and contemporary art reveal how these previously disrupted and banned traditions are now reawakening through the efforts of the Indigenous artists featured in this exhibition.
The Burke Museum invites visitors to experience the stories and celebrate the resilience of Indigenous tattoo practitioners and those who wear the visual language of their ancestors on their bodies.
24HourNation appreciates that, on the first Thursday of each month, The Burke Museum is open until 8 p.m. It’s more night than you will capture at just about every other Seattle museum.
Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest will be on view at Seattle’s The Burke Museum Nov. 6, 2022 – Apr. 16, 2023.
