We Are Still Here at All My Relations

We Are Still Here at All My Relations

As part of the inaugural collaboration between Hennepin Theatre Trust and All My Relations Arts, We Are Still Here features the culmination of works completed by the artists during their eighteen month cohort. The artworks include digital designs previously featured on billboards in downtown Minneapolis, along Hennepin Avenue, and throughout the Twin Cities. These works served to uplift Native voices and highlight truth-telling by changing the narrative of Native people in Minnesota. The art highlights contemporary Native culture while dispelling stereotypes through education, humor, and bold, thought-provoking designs. By interweaving contemporary and traditional storytelling, and the allyship of Indigenous communities here in the Twin Cities, We Are Still Here connects the Native history of the land and continued connections to our past through the powerful visuals and current narratives of contemporary Native artists. We Are Still Here Featuring Ray Janis, Sheldon Starr and Missy Whiteman, with mentor artist Jonathan Thunder. All My Relations Arts 1414 East Franklin Avenue May 24th – July 2nd, 2022 Closing Reception: Saturday, June 25th 6-8pm For more information visit: allmyrelationsarts.com

biskaabiiyang  at All My Relations

biskaabiiyang  at All My Relations

biskaabiiyang (returning to ourselves)  is a group exhibition investigating Indigenous Futurisms and the interconnectedness of nows through video installation, interactive gaming, mixed media and digital illustrations curated by Emerging Curators Institute Fellow, Juleana Enright.  Featured artists: Santo Aveiro-Ojeda, Sequoia Hauck, Reyna Hernandez, Elizabeth LaPensée, Coyote Park, and Summer-Harmony Twenish.  Biskaabiiyang is an Anishinaabeg word meaning the enactment of ‘returning to ourselves’ through the regeneration of our Indigenous ways of knowing. A counter to Western constructs of sovereignty, ownership and time, the works of biskaabiiyang explore the process of decolonization through ancestral knowledge, land stewardship, water protection and body and identity sovereignty. Using the context of an imagined future, we challenge our erasure and create ourselves into being, aligning past, present and future. It is always now. October 14- December 11, 2021, All My Relations Arts, 1414 E Franklin Avenue http://www.allmyrelationsarts.com/

His hand-sewn works from self hunted animals challenges anti-Native policy and viewers who subscribe to mainstream, non-Indigenous views of conservation, believing that we must “preserve” nature by minimizing human interaction with it. This is in contrast to Indigenous perspectives: We must build reciprocal, intimate relationships with plants and animals, as we nourish ourselves and adorn our bodies with them every day. His fur objects go a step beyond to address the legacy of colonization and the struggle to keep ancient customs alive. By celebrating natural cycles and living in harmony with the animal and spiritual worlds, Yup”™ik culture has survived for thousands of years in some of the harshest environments. -All My Relations Arts American Swedish Institute: 2600 Park Avenue, Minneapolis Museum hours: Thursday-Sunday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., reservations required  www.asimn.org/ 612-871-4907 Current Exhibitions: Papier - Bea Szenfeld and Stina Wirsén, Feb 06, 2021 to Jul 11, 2021 In a juncture between art and fashion, two renowned Swedish artists meet in a mutual affection for the handmade and paper.
