Syracuse University Art Museum

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

This exhibition features the ceramic works by Onondaga artist Peter B. 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.

Under the direction of professors Sascha Scott and Scott Manning Stevens (Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), this exhibition was co-curated by students at Syracuse University, including Charlotte Dupree (Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), Eiza Capton (Cayuga Nation), Anthony V. Ornelaz (Diné), Ana Borja Armas (Quechua), and Jaden N. Dagenais.

The exhibition has been made possible by generous support from a Humanities New York Action Grant, a mini-grant from the Engaged Humanities Network (EHN), and Syracuse University SOURCE grants, as well as by co-sponsorship from the Humanities Center (Syracuse Symposium), College of Arts and Sciences, College of Visual and Performing Arts, Hendricks Chapel, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Department of Art and Music Histories, and the Native American and Indigenous Studies Program.
