This is the third of three colloquia that ground our Indigenous New York series this year. The series is a public program and research initiative of the Vera List Center developed in collaboration with artist Alan Michelson and in consultation with artist Jackson Polys. It facilitates collaborations and exchanges among contemporary curators, artists, critics and scholars through public events and colloquia that focus on indigeneity and the legacy of colonialism and position the local as evidence of concerns shared globally. The first of this series, Indigenous New York, Curatorially Speaking considered four thematics that grew out of in-depth conversations between curators in the field and indigenous and non-indigenous epistemologies and methodologies; the non-colonial museum; challenges of collaborative curation; the growing indigenization of international art. The second, Indigenous New York Critically Speaking, surveys indigenous and non-indigenous critics and their effect on the contemporary art world. This event invites Indigenous artists to address the ways their practices and concerns relate to the previous two colloquia.

Indigenous New York is supported, in part, by the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, members of the Vera List Center Advisory Committee, and is part of the Vera List Center's 2015-2017 curatorial programs on Post Democracy.
