Decolonial Gestures | A Symposium on Indigenous Performance (Day 2)

May 6, 2017, 9:15 am8:00 pm

<em>Decolonial Gestures</em>

Decolonial Gestures

Decolonial Gestures | A Symposium on Indigenous Performance is an interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and intertribal symposium intended to both present and stimulate contemporary Indigenous expressive forms. Taking cue from the recent theoretical unfolding of decoloniality, the symposium will both enact and examine decolonial praxis, which resists the perceptual and discursive strictures of colonial matrices of power.

The events serve as a public forum for the presentation of contemporary Native art and the transmission of Indigenous knowledges across generations, while engaging multiple diverse communities of New Mexico. Bringing together both established and emerging artists, the symposium marks a historical trajectory of Indigenous performance and explores new directions in Native art.

For up-to-date and detailed information, see Decolonial Gestures | A Symposium on Indigenous Performance.
