Léuli Eshrāghi: The end is where we start from

September 7 - October 22, 2021 7:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Artist Léuli Eshrāghi’s exhibition The end is where we start from is articulated around a ceremony in which humans, animals, and nature come together to celebrate Indigenous kinships, along with the multiple genders, sexualities, and pleasures that they bear. The destructiveness of exploitative relations with land, water, and other entities is replaced by touch and affect, going beyond taboos imposed by Western cultures. Eshrāghi proposes new, sensitive avenues for addressing the future of fa’afafine, fa’atama, queer, trans, nonbinary, and other people, whose key roles in the intellectual and cultural life of a multiplicity of Indigenous kinship systems have been violently crushed.
