HOW: Engagements with the "Hollywood Indian"
A Space (Artists Space), 2008
Toronto: A Space (Artists Space), 2008
"This exhibition explores the legacy of the one-dimensional depictions of Native North Americans developed in film, art and literature, which have become accepted as authentic in the nation's consciousness, affecting historic truth and contributing to stereotypical notions of Indigenous peoples. In HOW: Engagements with the "Hollywood Indian", the artists either confront the simplistic misconceptions imposed upon an Indigenous collective consciousness, or expose the alluring influence and desire Hollywood has had on Indigenous lives and imagination."
