The event commemorates Heap of Birds’ collaboration with the non-profit Project Backboard and Five-Star Basketball, in which the artist renovated two basketball courts, installing two large-scale paintings from his ongoing Neuf series across the playing surface.
Heap of Birds is a multidisciplinary artist, advocate, and educator. His work raises awareness of Native history, controversies, and land acknowledgment, often subverting staples of public signage to honor the land’s first occupants. Heap of Birds is a member of the MoMA PS1 Board of Trustees and will be featured in the upcoming exhibition Just Above Midtown: Changing Spaces, opening at The Museum of Modern Art on October 9, 2022.
