Urbano Project is presenting Artist-in-Residence Erin Genia’s first solo show in Boston, Okoŋwaŋžidaŋ, which means “oneness, being of one mind” in the Dakota language. The exhibit is opening October 24, and is running through December 21, with an opening reception on Thursday, October 24 from 6-8 pm at Urbano’s gallery at the Brewery Complex in Jamaica Plain. Genia (Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate) is a multidisciplinary Dakota artist with an MS in Art, Culture and Technology from MIT. She works with painting, ceramic, sound, performance, and video installation to create a powerful presence of Indigeneity that invokes an evolution of thought and practice aligned with the cycles of the natural world and the potential of humanity. In Dakota philosophy, all things exist within a continuum of life, and the concept of mitakuye oyasin -- we are all related, extends not only to other people, but to animals, plants, minerals, electricity, air, objects, and everything in existence.
