Gallup Motel Butchering
January 17 – February 21, CentralTrak, Free
On exhibition at CentralTrak is the four-channel video installation, Gallup Motel Butchering by artists’ collective Postcommodity. In the artists’ words, this work “explores the culturally sensible Indigenous perceptions and engagements juxtaposed with the theoretical ideas presented by Western thought.”
The video installation features a Navajo woman using a motel in Gallup, New Mexico as a temporary space to butcher a sheep that she will prepare for a family feast. The exhibition examines the contested space of tribal homeland, tradition, globalism, commerce, cultural continuity and cross-cultural opinion. Layman on viola.
