INDIGENOUS NEW YORK Saturday, 11 MAR 2017 4-6.00PM Wollman Hall 65 West 11th Street, 5th Floor New York City
Indigenous New York, Critically Speaking presents key findings of a day-long colloquium that focuses on newly commissioned texts by nine writers of different backgrounds. This is the second of three colloquia that ground the research initiative Indigenous New York , which has been developed by the Vera List Center in collaboration with artist Alan Michelson (Mohawk) and in consultation with artist Jackson Polys (Tlingit). The series facilitates collaborations and exchanges among contemporary curators, artists, critics and scholars of Native American, First Nations, and Indigenous descent and their non-indigenous colleagues that focus on indigeneity and the legacy of colonialism and position the local as evidence of concerns shared globally.
