Join us for Dikeou Collection’s first presentation of Bougatsos’ The State of Amerikkka (2021). As an ephemeral ice sculpture, this work addresses “the violence of the settler state and the resources taken from the indigenous people of this country to capitalize on the sacred tobacco plant for industry.” — Lizzi Bougatsos
