The REDress Project at the National Museum of the American Indian

2019, 2:38 min
The US National Museum of the American Indian presented The REDress Project in 2019, an outdoor art installation by artist Jaime Black (Métis). Shown in the United States for the first time, the installation of empty red dresses centers on the issue of missing or murdered indigenous women. Black hopes to draw attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Native women and to evoke a presence through the marking of absence.

This Project was originally designed and installed in 2010 by Manitoba based Metis artist, Jaimie Black to be a stark visual reminder of the violence perpetrated against thousands of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women, children, and 2-spirit peoples in Canada; many of whom still are missing.
