Ortiz’s career spans four decades, extending across multiple media and boundaries. His vision combines his Pueblo culture with sci-fi, fantasy, and apocalyptic themes. The result is futuristic imagery that visitors marvel at in his exhibitions throughout the world. His work has been exhibited in venues from the Netherlands to Paris to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, and other U.S. museums.

Ortiz is known for mixing Star Wars-like themes with historic events such as the 1680 Pueblo Revolt.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to experience Ortiz’s ceramics and photographic works that put contemporary media in conversation with ancestral Cochiti ceramic methods.
