Re-place Kahon:ios

by The Staff on May 15, 2013


Brookfield Renewable Energy Company’s recent return of 100 acres of sacred land at Cohoes Falls to the Haudenosaunee, League of Iroquois, is celebrated in the new exhibit at the Foundry, Re-place Kahon:ios.

A solo exhibit of work by native artist Merritt Johnson, Re-place Kahon:ios is, according to the exhibit notes, “a narrative of land, diaspora and nativism—an epic of place and culture coming apart under the pressure of appropriation and dislocation from ancestral soil.”

Pictured is Johnson’s Waterfall Face.

Re-place Kahon:ios opens Saturday (May 18) with an artist’s reception from 6 to 9 PM at the Foundry for Art Design + Culture (119 Remsen St., Cohoes). The show will remain on view through June 23, and there will be an artist lecture on June 9 at 1:30 PM. For more info, call the gallery at 229-2173 or visit thefoundrysite.com.
