Two Row Wampum - Esteban Cabeza de Baca
Add to Calendar 14/06/2019 25/07/2019 Europe/Brussels Two Row Wampum - Esteban Cabeza de Baca

 From 14 June 2019 to 25 July 2019 De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) will be showcasing the exhibition Two Row Wampum by Esteban Cabeza de Baca.

 

“As I write this text I stand on Iroquois land. Two Row Wampum takes its title from the 1613 treaty between the Dutch and the Iroquois people. Inspired by the flow of parallel waters, the two nations conceived an agreement where they had a separate but equal existence in the new world. 

 

In imagining a new space past the age of colonization Two Row Wampum seeks to merge varying streams of knowledge. This new space honors different approaches of image making from new world to the old. European landscape painting techniques were used to represent the American landscape in New Mexico. When that image is folded and contorted, the paintings history jumps back and forth in temporality. Two Row Wampum seeks new alliances, narratives, revisions and reparations. In learning from the mistakes of humanity’s past we can build a better future.”
-Esteban Cabeza de Baca
