~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As part of the exhibition, Another Justice: US is Them, opening at the Parrish Art Museum on July 23, the Museum has activated the local Shinnecock Monuments throughout July, August, and September with digital billboards by Indigenous artists Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock), Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Choctaw-Cherokee), Koyoltzintli Miranda-Rivadeneira (Ecuadorian, Chi’xi), and Marie Watt (Seneca).

The 62-foot-tall electronic billboards were erected by the Shinnecock along Sunrise Highway in 2019 to generate revenue for the Nation. Presenting the work of these artists on them is an effort to uplift Native voices and to model, on a small scale, the possibility for economic justice through creative investment. The four works on view invite the viewer to consider their own relationship to the land. In general, monuments serve as an extension of public civic spaces, signaling who we celebrate and which histories we collectively value. The activation of the Shinnecock Monuments in the context of this exhibition is an affirmation of these Indigenous voices through artist expression and civic discourse.
