Indigenous artists Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock) and Koyoltzintli Miranda-Rivadeneira (Ecuadorian, Chi’xi) will discuss the Land Back movement during a panel discussion with Shinnecock council administrator and attorney Kelly Dennis, and the artist Nour Batyne on Friday, September 30 at 6 p.m. , in person at the Parrish Art Museum at Water Mill.
The work of Miranda-Rivadeneira and Jeremy Dennis is featured on the Shinnecock Monuments as part of the exhibition ‘Another Justice: US is Them–Hank Willis Thomas | For Freedoms,” on view through Nov. 6 at the museum and offsite at Monuments on Montauk Highway.
Jeremy Dennis and Miranda-Rivadeneira are among 12 contemporary artists from “For Freedoms” – the artist coalition founded by conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas, Eric Gottesman, Michelle Woo and Wyatt Gallery – represented in the exhibition. “Another Justice: US is Them” includes nearly 30 works and series – many created specifically for the exhibition – in mixed media, sculpture, site-specific installations, murals and photography.
