The Brink: Demian DinéYazhi

Now through 9/9/2018 | Henry Art Gallery

Museums University District

In this exhibition, transdisciplinary artist Demian DinéYazhi´, born to the clans Naasht’ézhí Tábaahá (Zuni Water’s Edge) and Tódích’íí’nii (Bitter Water) of the Diné, presents new work that expands upon their ongoing engagement with the entangled relationships between the land, Native cultures, and colonial, capitalist economic and political systems. A group of analog slide projectors form the core of the installation, casting images and text throughout the space to create a multi-layered narrative of DinéYazhi´’s homeplace on Diné Bikéyah (Navajo Nation) in Arizona and New Mexico, and its proximity to uranium mining industries and the popular US highway Route 66.
