Thru Feb. 4
Dimensions of Indigenous & Cultural Identity Politics

Featuring work by Gordon Coons (Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe) and Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra (Xinka-Lenca, El Salvador). The impacts of colonization can still be felt today in our communities, manifesting in different but similarly meaningful ways for Indigenous Peoples living in the Midwest. The tension, distrust, and trauma from generations of relocation, cultural appropriation, assimilation and genocide make unity difficult for those who have survived. As Dimensions of Indigenous seeks to unite Indigenous people of the four directions and as tension around immigration and who can claim to be Indigenous make it difficult, in a stripped down version of the exhibition curators Gordon Coons and Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra explore dimensions of Indigeneity through an intimate view of their practice. In conversation with one another, their installation work explores Indigenous cultural identity politics through the modern expression of color and paper cuttings. Curated by Electric Machete Studios. Sliding scale; $3-10 per person suggested. Intermedia Arts, 2822 Lyndale Ave South, Minneapolis. For more info, see: http://intermediaarts.org.
