Erica Lord is an interdisciplinary artist who explores concepts that exist within a contemporary Indigenous experience. Born to a Finnish-American mother and an Athabaskan/ Iñupiat father, her experience of perpetually moving between locations inspires her work’s interest in themes of displacement, cultural identity, and cultural limbo. Exhibitions include The DeVos Museum of Art, Marquette; the Museum of Contemporary Native Art, Santa Fe; Musée du Quai Branley, Paris; the National Gallery of Canada; and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, among others. Lord is currently based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she teaches at the Institute of American Indian Arts and continues her interdisciplinary art practice.
