R.I.S.E.: COLLECTIVE FURY
On January 3, Demian DinéYazhi´ and R.I.S.E. (Radical Indigenous Survivance & Empowerment) will begin R.I.S.E.: COLLECTIVE FURY a project that will explore how outrage and anger can be mobilized not as tools of division, but as a means to solidarity and empowerment. Through a series of performances, artworks, workshops, and talks, R.I.S.E.: COLLECTIVE FURY will seek to amplify the work of hyper-marginalized Indigenous artists and challenge the exclusion of Indigenous narratives, histories, and communities throughout the ancestral lands of their respective tribes.
Throughout this Session, R.I.S.E.: COLLECTIVE FURY will function as equal part event space, exhibition site, and infoshop presenting work focused on the interwoven political and artistic urgencies of Indigenous Queer and Two Spirit communities (IQ2S) including Indigenous Feminisms and Matriarchal empowerment, Decolonization and Indigenous Sovereignty, Anti-fascism, and environmental justice. At work in DinéYazhi’s project is a concern for the routine and ubiquitous ways in which the outrage and emotions of communities of color are policed, with often violent ends, and the implications of whose anger we choose to hold space. Through R.I.S.E.: COLLECTIVE FURY, DinéYazhi´ and R.I.S.E., will stage the ways that Indigenous communities shape spaces of collective fury that ultimately yield forms of healing and resilience.
