New Tribe: New York: Alan Michelson

September 17, 2005 – January 1, 2006

Museum: American Indian Museum Heye Center

Location: Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House

In a variety of multimedia works created over the last 15 years -- mapping the absent Indian of New York in No York (1997), projecting a video about industrialization on white turkey feathers in Mespat (2001), watching the activity near a nuclear power plant in Twilight, Indian Point (2003) -- Michelson's work focuses on both the city and state of New York and reveals his continuing interest in history and origins.
