Join us for a public performance of The Elders Say We Don’t Visit Anymore with artist Dylan Miner.

Miner’s art often inhabits the resonant spaces where social practice and Indigenous culture meet.

Inspired by sentiments expressed by retired Anishinaabe autoworkers in his home community of East Lansing, Michigan, this work reflects the practice of visiting in an urbanized place.

During this performance, participants are invited to slow down and join the artist for a cup of tea made from traditional medicinal plants.

This performance is part of the exhibition Àbadakone | Continuous Fire | Feu continuel.

Included with admission to the Gallery.
