DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [Tom Huff]'s soapstone sculpture "Sage" greets visitors to the upstairs gallery at the Everson Museum of Art, showing Haudenosaunee: Elements. And his window installation at the entrance to the Warehouse Gallery's Tate Wikikuwa Museum: North America 2024 sets the tone for the unusual exhibit inside.Or check out the film called The Shirt. Dialogue isn't necessary but the viewer needs to pay attention to the changing messages written on the white star of the show. If you miss a few, no worries; the five-minute loop comes around again really quickly. Tracy Thomas' "Reflections of Injustice" displays a player for the Iroquois National Lacrosse team, gazing toward the Statue of Liberty far in the distance. The commentary on the passport situation the team faced last summer-Iroquois Confederacy papers weren't good enough for them to travel to England-remains a point of controversy.Across downtown at Syracuse University's Warehouse Gallery, a small but resonant show calls to viewers' attention the ongoing plight of Leonard Peltier, incarcerated, some would say unjustly, since 1976 for the murder of two FBI agents. Tate Wikikuwa is Peltier's Lakota name. The San Francisco-based artist goes by the name Rigo 23.
