Working with Oh Nancy artists for over two months, students of the Indian Mountain School created work that used the Oh Nancy narrative as a starting point. Encouraged to ﬁnd aspects of the
story they related to personally, they created work that both engaged them and broadened their knowledge of contemporary art making. The works created by these students profoundly
inﬂuenced the direction of the Oh Nancy narrative.
Oh Nancy is an national art collective that provides a vehicle for artists -- presenting them with a narrative structure that facilitates collaboration and multiple-authorship. Using contradiction,
symbolism, and coincidence. histories are created and layered -- anchored in this narrative blueprint. The story is a mythical and satirical portrait of Americana that examines fanaticism and
the complexities of the American hero. Artists respond to different facets of the story, organically building it along the way, each exhibition the latest chapter in an ever growing epic.
Oh Nancy was created and is directed by Arthur Henderson, Nathan Wellman and Fionn McCabe.
