The Armory is pleased to present an online screening of videos from their current exhibition Exposure: Native Art and Political Ecology, which documents international Indigenous responses to the impacts of nuclear production processes on Native peoples and the environment. The online program features works from artists Klee Benally, Anna Tsouhlarakis, Jessie Kleemann, Alexander Lee, Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, and OKI.

The Armory Center for the Arts is currently presenting the exhibition titled Exposure: Native Art and Political Ecology, on view through Sunday, June 11, 2023. This exhibition documents international Indigenous artists’ responses to the impacts of radiation and toxic waste on Native peoples and the environment. The work of the 36 artists and collectives, most of whom identify as Indigenous, is centered around the impact that nuclear testing, uranium mining, and the subsequent contamination have had on the colonized peoples and their ancestral, unceded lands of present-day Australia, Canada, Greenland, the US, Japan, and the Pacific Islands. The exhibition presents an interdisciplinary mixture of forms and genres, including sculpture, video installation, photography, collage, glasswork, metalwork, fiber, paintings, and virtual-reality experiences. The works tell personal stories of illness, struggle, and resilience in the face of corporate willfulness and government complicity.

This exhibition was first presented in August 2021 at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a contemporary art venue operated by the Institute of American Indian Arts, and was organized by a curatorial team led by MoCNA’s Chief Curator Manuela Well-Off-Man.
