New Red Order is an unusual institution: a public secret society of rotating and expanding membership, including core contributors Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys, who confront colonial structures with incisive humour, to promote Indigenous futures.
New Red Order Presents: One if by Land, Two if by Sea features the work of an international group of emerging and established visual artists: Asinnajaq, Hanan Benammar & Uyarakq, Minik Bidstrup, Sean Connelly, Carola Grahn, Julie Edel Hardenberg, Inuk Silis Høegh & Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen, Fox Maxy, Joar Nango, New Red Order, Laura Ortman, Solvognen, Krista Belle Stewart, Tanya Tagaq, Tarrak, Uvagut TV.
The exhibition presents films, sculpture, performance, installations, music videos, photography and much more. Contributions from artists like Krista Belle Stewart investigate the inappropriate desire in Europe to ‘play Indian’, other works like Fox Maxy’s film Maat raise issues of ‘Landback’ all the while exhibiting a sense of contemporaneity and Indigenious excellence, while projects from Hanan Benammar and Uyarakq seek to reimagine historical colonial figures in more nuanced and sometimes humorous light. Issues surrounding memory, history, and colonial legacies are upended in favor of emphasizing contemporaneity and a speaking back to the monolithic understanding of history that many Indigenous people have been asked to internalize. Themes include land rights, history-writing, religion, public monuments, Indigenous peoples across nation borders, support, independence and survivance.
