New Red Order (NRO) is a public secret society that enlists a rotating and expanding cast of Informants. Core contributors Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys, here with Jim Fletcher and Kate Valk, utilize video and performance to create sites of acknowledgment, savage pronouncement, calling out, calling in, recruitment, and cumulative interrogation to shift potential obstructions to Indigenous growth. Works by the NRO have appeared at the Alaska State Museum, Anchorage Museum, Artists Space, e-flux, ICA Philadelphia, Images Festival, Microscope Gallery, MOMA, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto Biennial of Art, Union Docs, the Walker Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and featured in the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
