Marquee Project

June 4, 2020

Marquee by Denise Uyehara, citing Joy Harjo

In May 2020, I began a series of installations and videos that superimpose phrases onto abandoned marquees in Tucson, responding to the times in which we live: the pandemic and its impact on Indigenous communities, and Communities of Color, police violence toward Black people. I began the project as part of the “Notes from the Motherfield,” Kore Press’s ongoing series, also developed it for Anti/body: There in the Distance, curated by Natalie Nguyen, in collaboration with Amanda Meeks and Tucson Art + Feminism. @Kore Press #AntibodyAF2020 @ArtAndFeminism
