WE ARE HERE highlights Indigenous creatives working across media in the areas of film, visual art, and performance. Although aesthetic approaches and creative practices vary, featured artists in this exhibition place Modernity and Tradition in dialogue with one another. As Indigenous people we face ongoing destruction by western technology, yet we are armed with our own ancestral knowledge and technologies. We accept the amalgamation of the two worlds within and around us. It fuels the creation of a “world in which many worlds can exist.” (EZLN proverb) Exhibiting artists include Mia Ritter-Whittle (Caddo and Lenape), Corey Ashley (Dine) Kenaba Hatathlie (Dine) Mi Casa No Es Su Casa(Abya Yala) , Hotvlkvce Harjo (mvskoke Creek), Olivia Camfield (mvskoke Creek) & Woodrow Hunt (klamath Modoc and cherokee), Nikki Escobar (Páez), Bert Benally (Dine), Colectiva Nopalera (Abya Yala), Regan De Loggans (choctaw, k’iche’Maya), Mona Cliff (A'ananin/Assinaboine), Carlos Rodriguez (Taino//Purepecha descendant) , Camas Logue (Klamath/Modoc), Ryan Dennison (Dine), Marina Eskeets (Dine).
Join us for the exhibition opening on September 6, which will be presented alongside Kinstillatory Mappings in Light and Dark Matter. Pull up with your calpulli // relations // squad and see what over 18 different nations offer in place of antiquated pan indenigenty. You already know the vibes, anti-capitalist, anti colonial space, which means we don’t tolerate bigotry of any kind.
