The New Old World

This is an online exhibit featuring Marisol Villanueva's photographic work titled "The New Old World" which was installed at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City in 2003. This site is a new release of a previous site featuring the exhibition.

This presentation also speaks to the power of the photographic image in Western culture. What I mean is that it reaffirms and fortifies it, as does the Museum itself which of course bases its practice on all that which is tangible, physical and visible. The problem with that is that indigeneity is often none of those things, so one form of visibility comes at the expense of acknowledging that which is rendered invisible.
