"Analog Futures" brings together work by artists who explore the materiality of the machines and electronic devices that deliver images and information to us. In Analog Futures, television sets and computer black boxes, cathode ray tubes and VHS videotape, are transformed into sculptural objects, repurposed and reanimated to reveal the internal electronics that power video monitors, the visual glitches that underlie computer circuitry, and the magnetic tape that mysteriously holds video imagery.

Mni Wiconi — Water is Life

Sep 5 @ 8:20am

Monday, September 5 12:20pm - 1:20pm

Cody Two Bears is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council, representing the Cannonball district. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is fighting to protect its waters and sacred places from negative impacts of the Dakota Access Pipeline project, a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The current proposed pipeline route crosses under Lake Oahe, just a half mile up from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, the drinking water supply for thousands of area residents. The pipeline would also run through land considered sacred to the Tribe. The Army Corps of Engineers green-lighted several sections of the process without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, various environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
