This IS Kalapuyan Land

Five Oaks Museum 17677 NW Springville Road, Portland

What happens when a museum known for pioneer history turns over curatorial authority to a young Indigenous artist and writer? For Five Oaks Museum, the result is a bold, self-critical exhibition about the Tualatin Valley’s first people.

David Kordansky Gallery 5130 W. Edgewood Pl, Los Angeles

I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within.

Shulamit Nazarian 616 N La Brea Ave, Los Angeles

Troy Chew: Fuck the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men

Parker Gallery 2441 Glendower Ave, Los Angeles

The exhibition borrows its title (a riposte to the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme) from a self-portrait depicting the artist walking alone on the street at night, paintbrush and blunt in hand. The composition is illuminated in the background by the blinding high beams and red and blue flash of a police car. Taking cues from the tradition of Western History painting, the narrative is left unfinished, allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusions from an all-too-familiar scenario.
