Douglas Miles, who lives and works on the San Carlos Apache-Akimel O’odham Reservation hours outside Phoenix, is known for his updated approach to Native American art and culture. Balancing fine art and street art, he is able to toe fine line, creating representations of both community and popular culture.
Miles — whose “Apache X” showcase drew numerous gallery goers last spring — returns to the Valley with “instApache Filtered Rezolution: Social Media Now.” The month-long show features Instagram snapshots of Indigenous culture in a society steeped in fierce formalities and tradition — some seemingly outdated, some not.
The free exhibition debuts from 6 to 10 p.m. on First Friday, March 6, at the Bokeh Gallery in Monorchid, 214 East Roosevelt Street. Visit www.monorchid.com.
Fri., March 6, 6-10 p.m.; March 7-8, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; Fri., March 20, 6-10 p.m., 2015
