Famous (Indian) Battles of the Muhheakantuck by Jason Lujan

Muhheakantuck, a Lenape word meaning "river that flows both ways," was the Indigenous name for what is now known as the Hudson River. Artist Jason Lujan presents ten prints based on 19th century, hand-tinted postcards and feudal Japanese scenic maps that examine the colonization of the Hudson River Valley. The series frames the region's contention for land and resources using an uncharacteristic vocabulary.

Jason Lujan is of Chiricahua Apache background and has lived in New York City since 2001. He has been included in multiple solo and group exhibitions, including the Kentler International Drawing Space, Exit Art, Museum of Contemporary Native Art in Santa Fe, and Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares in Mexico City. Jason's artwork is invested in language and motif to create a hybridization of traditional and contemporary elements seeking to advance an exploration between dialogue and styles that are not limited to their historical definitions.
