What to see in New York Art Galleries (NYT)

Artists in the earlier show included Kay WalkingStick, who has three paintings here that think about landscape through an indigenous lens, and G. Peter Jemison, whose drawings here on brown paper bags include wry and blunt titles like “Party Bag” (1982) and “Hunger on Reservations While Children in Africa Starve” (1981).

Newer works include model buildings from Alan Michelson’s “Prophetstown” series, one of which is covered in facsimiles of newspapers from the 19th century with articles and dialogues pertaining to the fate of indigenous people. “Culture Capture” (2017) by Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil and Jackson Polys is a terrific video that turns a visit to an ethnographic museum into a delirious walk through the history of colonialism.
