Red Exit: Andrea Carlson and S̶A̶N̶T̶I̶A̶G̶O̶ X in conversation

Apr 26, 2021

On the occasion of her current public art project at the Whitney, Andrea Carlson: Red Exit, Carlson (Grand Portage Ojibwe) speaks in conversation with fellow artist S̶A̶N̶T̶I̶A̶G̶O̶ X (Koasati and Hacha'Maori) about their shared interests in land, Indigenous Futurisms, and how their respective practices celebrate, in Carlson’s words, “the place we (Native People) reserve for ourselves . . . places of joy amidst removal, exclusion, and attempted assimilation.” Carlson and X both live and work in what is today known as Chicago and their discussion will also touch on their relationships with the city, as well as the interconnections between their distinct explorations of Native spaces and histories.
