SHATTERING THE PICTURES FROM OUR HEADS

ABOUT THE INSTALLATION

This exhibition deconstructs the “Mythic Indian” stereotypes we see in mainstream media through the perspective of members from the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe.

 

You drive through Owyhee, the headquarters of the Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada, where you will find real individuals, landscapes, and conversations that bring to light the diverse cultural identity of the Native community.


We invite you to experience these first-hand stories inside an immersive video art installation that will include multi-screen art as well as 360 video technology. Our team can’t wait to show you this intimate film project at the Northeastern Nevada Museum in Elko, NV in the 2021 season

OUR MISSION

For many years the Native American community has been labeled as monolithic, effectively extinguishing individual and cultural identities.

 

After seven years of an amazing relationship working with the youth of the Sho-Pai tribes, we want this art exhibition to become an artistic platform for authentic voices and thought-provoking visuals that shatter the misconceptions behind the people of First Nations.
