Description

This monograph accompanies the exhibition “Time Holds All the Answers,” Postcommodity’s most significant museum presentation to date. Curated by Dr. Gerald McMaster, the exhibition takes on subjects including environmental crises, Indigenous sovereignty and land stewardship, the forces of capitalism, and the mythologies of modern art and architecture.

The publication generates a vital new body of knowledge on Postcommodity. Dr. McMaster’s expansive essay considers Postcommodity’s most recent work alongside key projects from the last decade, unpacking the collective’s distinctive formal and conceptual strategies. Roberto Bedoya, a long-time correspondent of the artists, reflects on their work through the powerful idea of Sovereignty of Context. Bill Kelley, Jr. draws multiple voices into dialogue, including historian Dr. Xóchitl Flores-Marcial and artists José Luis Macas, León David Cobo and Jorge González, to consider hemispheric knowledge and the future of Indigenous epistemologies. Elise Y. Chagas offers a perceptive analysis of Postcommodity’s use of sound as “a weapon, a medicine, a hacker’s tool.” Floyd Favel shares knowledge on the role of ceremony in nêhiyawuk (Plains Cree) culture, providing insights to think alongside Postcommodity’s aim to transform the museum through their own concept of reimagined ceremony. Designed by Sébastien Aubin, the publication reflects Postcommodity’s own approach to Indigenous Knowledge Systems as adaptive and relational.

Postcommodity is an interdisciplinary arts collective, currently comprised of Cristóbal Martínez and Kade L. Twist. They create works of art that personify a shared Indigenous lens and voice, examining aspects of 21st-century life to inspire a uniquely Indigenous vision of the future.
