“Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world.”
Alison Bremner (Nax̲shageit, b. 1989) is a Tlingit artist born and raised in Southeast Alaska. Bremner is the first Tlingit woman to carve and raise a totem pole. Woodcarving, painting and regalia are a few of the mediums the artist employs. Bremner uses traditional Tlingit techniques to tell new stories, and often includes humor as a tool in order to engage viewers who aren’t familiar with the Tlingit culture.
In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalization of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use. She has studied under master artists David A. Boxley and David R. Boxley. Her work is included in the permanent collections of, among others; the Burke Museum, Seattle; Portland Art Museum, Oregon; Château Musée Boulogne-sur-Mer, France; Frye Art Museum, Seattle and the British Museum in London.
