Event Details

STTLMNT IS NOT HERE practices Indigenization through an evolved artist strategy of occupation (digital and physical). Presenting Indigenous resilience and intersection in action based work to reclaim space, we disseminate our post-colonial artworks through the present to stake a radical, visionary claim on the future, creating our own living archive.

Through monumental installations and social collaboration, Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota) interweaves performance and political action to communicate stories about twenty-first century Indigeneity, producing large-scale projects globally. www.cannupahanska.com
