Event Dates

November 29 to December 8, 2023


This exhibit features contemporary artworks by the Etochime Harakbut Artist Collective that amplify Indigenous worldviews, specifically as they pertain to land, sustainability, and the impact of extractive industries on the Harakbut Indigenous community from the region of Madre de Dios in the Peruvian Amazon—an area heavily contaminated by an illegal gold mining boom over the past 20 years. MINE also features works relevant to the theme of resource extraction by a South African art project known as PLOT, thus drawing parallels between distinct geographic locations with shared extractive impacts.
This exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Wake Forest Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability and curated by Patsy Craig.
