What is the value in considering internal nation-state and Indigenous relationships on the international scene through artistic expression? And what, if any connection to ‘rights’ do Indigenous peoples have in a shifting international political terrain post-Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples? Jolene Rickard discusses Indigenous artistic pulse points in 2017 including Candice Hopkin’s curatorial work for documenta 14 in Greece, Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World exhibition at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and Ngahiraka Mason’s curatorial intervention for the inaugural Honolulu Biennial 2017 on the theme “Middle of Now | Here”. Can this kind of international art world attention divulge anything missed in more direct political engagement?

Rickard is a visual historian, artist and curator interested in issues of Indigeneity within a global context. Currently, she serves as Associate Professor in the History of Art and Art Departments at at Cornell University, where she is Director of the American Indian Program.
