In the Court of the Conqueror

Patty Ortiz and George Emilio Sanchez collaborated in the making of In the Court of the Conqueror.

As an integral part of the creative process, the two artists travelled across seven states, and the ancestral homelands of Native Nations, where the Supreme Court cases cited in the work took place.

Meshing images with documentation of the related historic locations and Sanchez' personal stories, Sanchez and Ortiz create a multidisciplinary experience that reexamines “place” and its relationship to the past and present historical conflicts of these lands.
