Celebrate Native Peoples + Learn More About Climate Justice at ‘Signal’ Subway Art Rededication Ceremony

    Date: 05/13/2018

    Time: 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

    Price: MetroCard swipe

    Mel Chin’s Signal is a permanent installation that was commissioned by MTA Arts & Design as part of the Broadway-Lafayette St station rehabilitation. For this project, Chin’s concept was to insert Native People’s presence, as a living culture, onto the Dutch-derived tile infrastructure found in MTA stations. The rededication ceremony is a part of Mel Chin’s exhibition, “All Over The Place”, and will be hosted by members of the Six Nations who will share remarks on current climate justice conflicts in the region. As part of the ceremony, the artists will present a new plaque commemorating the contribution of Chin and Jemison in the production of the work – a public action that joins the current debate surrounding the role and meaning of public monuments in reckoning with a more complete understanding of U.S. history. Following the ceremony will be a community dinner and discussion with indigenous cultural bearers at Kenkeleba House, co-hosted by AMERINDA and No Longer Empty.
