Continuity, Innovation, and Resistance: The Art of Peter Jones
August 24- December 15, 2023
The exhibition will feature artworks by Jones that comment on and actively resist the impact of colonialism on Haudenosaunee communities, past and present. His art presents Haudenosaunee culture as a continuum that has resisted and persisted despite serious attacks on Haudenosaunee lands, sovereignty, and cultural identity. Organized by College of Arts and Sciences faculty member Sascha Scott, associate professor and director of the art history graduate studies program, and Scott Manning Stevens (citizen of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), associate professor of English and director of the Native American Studies program.
This exhibition is supported by an Action Grant from Humanities New York, as well as a mini-grant from the Engaged Humanities Network (EHN).
