Voices: Teresa Montoya

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

6pm

Gallery 400 (400 S Peoria St.)

How do we understand what is toxic? Why do we prioritize the visual in such apprehensions? In August of 2015, a U.S. EPA subcontractor inadvertently breached a dam wall below the historic and now defunct Gold King Mine near Silverton, CO. The consequent release of three million gallons of acid mine water eventually reached the San Juan River that ows through the Navajo Nation. Montoya presents a series of photographs taken one year after the Gold King mine spill to document the enduring violence of toxic exposure and its visual representations. In doing so, she interrogates the racialized ways environmental contamination disproportionally impacts Indigenous communities and our territories.
