Editor’s Note: This event is part of the 2021/22 Emily Hall Tremaine Journalism Fellowship for Curators, following three posts by the Fellow, the third of which is an email-only exhibition sent to all Hyperallergic subscribers on February 27.
On Tuesday, March 1, at 7pm (EST), join us for a special event with curator and artist Jeremy Dennis as he discusses the art-historical legacy of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, of which he is an enrolled member, and his Hyperallergic email exhibition, which delves into the past and present of the Nation’s long-standing presence on what is now known as Southampton Village on Long Island, NY.
The conversation will also explore Dennis’s exhibition Outcropping- Indigenous Art Now, which is on view at the Southampton Arts Center on Shinnecock’s ancestral homelands through April 9, 2022, and features work by contemporary Shinnecock artists and Indigenous artists from various sovereign nations throughout the United States.
Jeremy Dennis is a contemporary fine art photographer and a tribal member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation in Southampton, NY. In his work, he explores indigenous identity, culture, and assimilation. He received a 2016 Dreamstarter Grant from the national nonprofit organization Running Strong for American Indian Youth to pursue his project, On This Site, which uses photography and an interactive online map to showcase culturally significant Native American sites on Long Island, a topic of special meaning for Dennis, who was raised on the Shinnecock Reservation.
Most recently, Dennis received the Creative Bursar Award from Getty Images in 2018 to continue his series Stories—Indigenous Oral Stories, Dreams and Myths. He holds an MFA from Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA, and a BA in Studio Art from Stony Brook University, NY. He currently lives and works on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton, New York.
