THIS IS DISPLACEMENT: Native Art Show Opens January. 9th
Plymouth Congregational Church
Public reception: January 24 at 6 p.m.
 
Plymouth Congregational Church, 1900 Nicollet Ave. (at Franklin) in Minneapolis, is exhibiting  the Native art show “This is Displacement: Native Artists Consider the Relationship Between Land & Identity,” in its Howard Conn Fine Arts Center Gallery.this is displacement native american
Curated by Emily Johnson (Yup’ik) and Carolyn Lee Anderson (Diné) “This is Displacement: Native Artists Consider the Relationship Between Land & Identity” is a group exhibit by a range of contemporary Native artists that consider what displacement from Native homelands means to their identity and their work.  
The exhibit features two and three-dimensional art, short films/video, recorded sound art (music/stories/sound collage) and written work.
As curators, Johnson and Anderson chose to define displacement broadly, not just as a negative outside force but also as an intense connection to a place other than one’s homeland. The group art exhibit offers audiences multiple Native views of displacement, and encourages a dialogue with the audience on the intersections of art and identity.
Co-curator Anderson, a painter, states, “I am curating this exhibit because displacement is an especially challenging issue in my life. I was born and raised in Minnesota, but my maternal heritage is Diné (Navajo). I feel at home here in Minnesota, but I also have an intense longing to be in the Southwest and learn about my culture and language. It’s as if half of my heart is here in Minnesota, and the other half is in Dinétah.”
