Postcommodity and Museum of Contemporary Native Arts

Harpo Foundation was pleased to support It Wasn’t the Dream of Golden Cities, on view August 1, 2010 to January 3, 2011 at The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA). This series of site-specific installations, exhibition, and related programming was developed by MoCNA’s Chief Curator, Ryan Rice (Mohawk) and Postcommodity, an interdisciplinary American Indian artist collective comprised of Raven Chacon (Navajo), Kade L. Twist (Cherokee), Steven Yazzie (Laguna/Navajo) and Nathan Young (Delaware/Kiowa/Pawnee).

Postcommodity works to advance Indigenous cultural self-determination and decolonization within the global climate of instability, ethnocentric violence, and neo-liberalism. It Wasn’t the Dream of Golden Cities incites forms of intervention, re-action and response to Santa Fe’s 400th Anniversary and the city’s annual Indian Market. (Source: MoCNA grant proposal)
