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.

Ancient traditions “unmasked” in Kennedy”'s dynamic ancient art masks

Interview with Alvin Kennedy by Howard McQuitter II “My art reflects a blend of urgan and primitive themes, expressed in pen and ink drawings and rigid paper sculptures,” Alvin Kennedy says. “The latter most often take the form of unique masks that reflects my heritage and bridges ethnic communities.” Alvin Kennedy is a sculptor-painter par excellence who concentrates on making African masks. While he worked as a social service counselor for youth in trouble, Alvin used his artistic talents. Interviewer (Howard McQuitterll) (HM): How long have you lived in the Twin Cities?
