Beau Dick: Revolutionary Spirit
Date: Mar 03, 2018 - Mar 30, 2018
The Audain Art Museum is proud to announce a special exhibition, Beau Dick: Revolutionary Spirit. The retrospective project is a critically important art historical project for the Audain Art Museum to undertake and honours the legacy of this remarkable artist. The Museum has made its mission to focus on collecting and exhibiting exceptional art created by gifted visual artists from what is now labelled British Columbia. As such, Beau Dick and his work stand out as exemplary. The retrospective will provide insight into the complexities of traditional and contemporary Indigenous approaches to the creation of art on the west coast. Beau Dick was an artist who was deeply rooted in the traditions of his Kwakwaka’wakw First Nation. He also challenges those traditions in order to create a distinctive artistic and cultural voice for himself within and outside of his Nation.
