Close Encounters: The Next 500 Years documents a ground-breaking exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art with artists from Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South America. Through a myriad of histories, trajectories, tensions, collisions, and self-images, 34 artists imagine the future within the context of present experiences and past histories. By radically reconsidering encounter narratives between native and non-native people, Indigenous prophecies, possible utopias and apocalypses, these artists propose intriguing possibilities for the next 500 years. More than an exhibition catalogue, this essay collection provides a thorough, expansive and diversified exploration of the future of indigenous culture. Profusely illustrated with dozens of color plates, fold-outs and visual surprises, an extensive bibliography and complete artist biographies.
