Air Land SeedAir Land Seed addresses global tensions between home and exile, drawing from the unique perspectives of the indigenous peoples of Native North America. Nine contemporary artists engaged in the politicized medium of printmaking/paper will exhibit works that question the forced displacements and ideologies that define our collective contemporary existence. This reappropriation of colonial markers - flags, boats and airwaves - subverts the control and militarization of indigenous homelands. Through participatory live print actions, performance, exhibition and dialogue, artists will repurpose these potent icons inscribed in the US Marine credo: "From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli, We fight our country’s battles, in the air, on land and sea."Exhibiting artists include: Faisal Abdu’Allah, Emily Arthur, Marwin Begaye, John Hitchcock, Ryan O’Malley, Henry Payer, Duane Slick, C. Maxx Stevens, and Dyani White Hawk.
