Lenapehoking: Algonquian Artists Today Exhibit
Spitzer School of Architecture, Convent Ave. and W. 135th St.
The dedication of the Lenape Land Acknowledgement marker will be followed by the opening reception of Lenapehoking: Algonquian Artists Today, at the Spitzer School of Architecture. Curated by Nadema Agard, a Powhatan/Cherokee/Sioux visual artist, the exhibit brings together the work of many Algonquian artists. The Algonquian nations of the Northeastern Woodlands call their ancestral homeland Lenapehoking or “Land of the Lenape,” which includes New York, Connecticut, Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Northern Delaware, with New York City at its heart.
The contemporary works in this show range from historic references to cutting-edge statements by Algonquian nation artists who are originally from Lenapehoking and those who are also culturally and linguistically related to the Lenape.
The works of these artists represent a Land Acknowledgement on this Island known as Manahatta or Menatay and are a symbol of the ongoing Indigenous presence in Lenapehoking, Turtle Island (Native North America) and the world at large.
We are the past, present, and will be future contributors to a global civilization.
Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock), Tecumseh Ceasar (Matinecock), Paul Deo (Powhatan), and Phoebe Farris (Powhatan/Lenape)
