Join us on Emory University's Quad for a screening of Sweet Land! Named "Best New Opera of 2021" by the Music Critics Association of North America, The Industry's Sweet Land is a grotesque historical pageant that disrupts the dominant narrative of American identity.

Sweet Land is the result of a highly collaborative and multi-perspectival approach. The opera features costumes by Cannupa Hanska Luger. He co-directed Sweet Land with Yuval Sharon, and his art interweaves performance and political action to communicate stories about 21st-century Indigeneity. His works are featured in the exhibition, Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger on view now at the Michael C. Carlos Museum.
