The truth of settler colonialism’s violent and extractive nature is both acknowledged and undercut by the artists in Truths that remain. Working across sound, film, sculpture, painting, and installation Crystal Z Campbell, Katsi’tsakwas Ellen Gabriel, tīná gúyáńí (seth cardinal dodginghorse, Glenna Cardinal), and Jeneen Frei Njootli flesh out the complex ways in which authority is established, circumvented, and refused. Thinking with and through the intimate and public spaces that violence is enacted—including direct conflict, dispossession, state recognition, and dehumanizing relationship to value that prioritizes property and currency over land and lives—they propose that perhaps the greatest threat to these systems is the sheer power of knowing who they are and what they are worth.
