Spirit is an initiative designed to educate the public, through lens-based art, regarding the true history of indigenous people and recruit advocates for indigenous issues everywhere, but with a specific focus on the US and Canada, where native lands and people аre still coming under attack everyday.The objective is to bring indigenous artists and issues to the forefront in a very powerful way. Create awareness and support for indigenous art, artists and issues locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.Collectively, this exhibition offers a partial glimpse, rather than a sweeping overview, of the many complex issues that indigenous people navigate as part of their lived realities.It also reflects, in some part, the intricate nature of indigenous identity. These nine artists have created images that reveal expressions of pain, resiliency, resistance, healing, tradition, and celebration.Jeremy Dennis: Nothing Happened Here illustrates the shared trauma of living on indigenous lands without rectification. Reflecting upon his experiences and observations in his community on the Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton, New York, Dennis illustrates the burden of loss of culture through assimilation, omission of Native history, loss of land, and resulting economic disadvantage.Thanks to @donnagarcia23 @lenscratch @acpfest You can visit the online exhibit here:https://www.equaldignity.org/spirit-exhibition
