Not on view

Published by Minor Matters Books, Never Forget is a limited-edition accordion book dedicated to a monumental installation work of the same title by Alaska-based artist Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit, Unangax̂). The original installation was on view at the 2021 Desert X festival in Palm Springs, CA, and measured 60' by 360'. Galanin’s work refers to the famous Hollywood sign, using the phrase “Indian Land" to challenge the colonial and racist history of the movie industry while simultaneously engaging viewers to contemplate the deep-rooted connections of Indigenous Americans to the land. The book includes texts by Candice Hopkins, Merritt Johnson, Gerald Clarke Jr, and Neville Wakefield, and photography by Lance Gerber.
