1. "Dignity: Tribes in Transition" by Dana Gluckstein at Steinberg Museum of Art
On view October 18, 2018 to March 8, 2019
Dana Gluckstein's touring exhibition "Dignity: Tribes in Transition" offers 60 black-and-white photographs of Indigenous Peoples that capture moments spanning three decades at C.W. Post's Steinberg Museum of Art in Nassau County. Gluckstein's portraits capture the collision when traditional and contemporary cultures collide and the universality of the human experience.
"Dignity" was first presented at the United Nations in Geneva in 2011, following the U.S. adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples that joined 147 other countries adopting the Declaration. Gluckstein addressed the World Economic Forum in 2013 in Davos, Switzerland on the ways art can impact the state of the world. The exhibition began its U.S tour in 2014, following its European tour where it was presented in museums. The exhibition, as well as an Gluckstein's book, DIGNITY: In Honor of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, received international awards.
The Steinberg Museum of Art is located in the B. Davis Schwartz Library, 720 Northern Blvd., Brookville, NY 11548. www.liu.edu.
