We invite you for an exclusive tour of the exhibition Arctic/Amazon: Networks of Global Indigeneity, done personally by artists Couzyn Van Heuvelen, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Uýra, and Olinda Silvano, supported by the Curators’ introduction.
Exhibition Arctic/Amazon: Networks of Global Indigeneity explores the ways in which Indigenous contemporary artists and collaborators take on issues of climate change, globalized Indigeneity, and contact zones in and about the Arctic and the Amazon during a time of crisis. The featured artists have their origins or are connected to these places, and their works embody a politics of resistance, resurgence, and ways of knowing and being in relation to the lands that are the source of their knowledge and creativity.
