The Fifth World marks out a new consciousness within humanity, where we begin to relearn our responsibilities after being humbled by disasters of our own creation. “The world that the capitalists envision is the one-world economy, that is their fifth world. But the fifth world is a new consciousness in the hearts of all human beings, the idea that the earth is shared and finite, and that we are naturally connected to the earth and with one another.” Thus writes Laguna Pueblo writer Leslie Marmon Silko about her concept of the Fifth World. Introduced in her novel, Almanac of the Dead, this concept inspired the exhibition’s title. The Fifth World also refers to the Hopi prophecy of an impending choice between destruction and conflict, or thinking with our hearts in harmony with nature. Since contact, we have been making the choice. - Wanda Nanibush
