'The World's UnFair,' a New Exhibition Calling for the Return of Indigenous Land, Comes to Queens

Located on an empty lot, the immersive art show has a simple message: “Give it back”

 

September 22, 2023



Located on an empty lot in Queens, New York, the immersive exhibition is the work of New Red Order, an artist collective that describes itself as “a public secret society of informants and collaborators dedicated to rechannelling desires for indigeneity towards the expansion of Indigenous futures.” It’s commissioned by the public arts organization Creative Time.

The point of the exhibition is “not about displacing more people, [but] about changing relationships to place, and also respecting and engaging with tribal sovereignty,” adds Khalil, who is Ojibway and a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
