Nicholas Galanin, whose "Indian Land" sign art at Desert X last year in Palm Springs, California, was a major draw, is exhibiting new work in Lenape territory at the Peter Blum Gallery in New York City.

The exhibition, “It Flows Through,” is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. It runs through July 22.

Galanin, Tlingit and Unangax̂, is a multimedia artist who works at the intersection of conceptual and material practice, rooted in his Sitka, Alaskan culture.

Of the new show, the artist said, “The exhibition speaks to persistence. The persistence of our connections to land and culture through continuum and memory, flowing through us, embedded in our bodies, our languages, and our art. These connections flow like water in varied ways, from gentle imperceptible movements to sudden forces, each capable of moving, shaping, and wearing down stone.”
