Afterword: Diorama, Defamiliarization, Indigenous Presence

    Abstract

    In this overview, I reflect on how the essays of this issue exemplify a range of “entanglements” between emerging Indigenous practices and art theory. Further, I try to draw attention both to some earlier models of the experiments in the projects presented as well as to the specific history of exhibitions that has influenced the developments in the art world. Finally, following the ways in which the essays attend to the disruptions Indigenous practice presents to settler colonial hegemony, I introduce a resonance between the interventions of decolonization and the semiotic concept of defamiliarization.
