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.
