Suzanne Kite: Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In this newly commissioned piece, Kite confronts histories of Indigenous displacement and "turns an Indigenous gaze" back on colonial knowledge systems, using AI as a means to explore alternative ways of nonhuman knowing based on the Lakota idea of The Good Way.

Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps) explores the Hudson River site known as Cruger Island, which John Cruger "purchased" in the 19th century and used as a backdrop for stolen Mayan ruins he transported as casts from Honduras. By the 1960s, Cruger Island had become a place for archeological excavations that displaced Indigenous artifacts and remains now held by the New York State Museum.

Screening begins at dusk.
