As Native Art DepartmentJason Lujan and I are leading Session Two There Is No Then and Now, Only Is and Is Not: A Native Art Department Reading Group as part of the ON WHITENESS: THE READING GROUP
JULY 22, 11AM
At Helena Anrather 28 Elizabeth Street 10013, 3rd floor
NADI will lead the reading group through selected texts, accompanied with performative actions. This conversation will examine the trajectory of relationships between whiteness and indigeneity, which is often omitted from discussions of race in the United States. The group will consider “Accomplices Not Allies: Abolishing the Ally Industrial Complex (An Indigenous Perspective)” by Indigenous Action Media; “The White Possessive” by Aileen Moreton-Robinson; and “Playing Indian” by Philip J. Deloria. Native Art Department International is a collaborative long-term project created and administered by Maria Hupfield and Jason Lujan.
In conjunction with On Whiteness, an exhibition organized by the Racial Imaginary Institute at The Kitchen, Helena Anrather Gallery is hosting a series of reading groups to explore a collection of texts that informed the exhibition.
