Next on the schedule for Vancouver’s Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art is Rez/Erect: Native Erotica, “a fresh, playful, provocative insight into sensuality and sexuality.” Artists include Shawn Hunt, Nicholas Galanin, Dionne Paul, Preston Singletary and Alida Kinnie Starr.
The curators tell us :“Artists draw their inspiration from diverse sources: the natural world, language, oral histories, creation stories, ancient songs of love and heartbreak, dance, ceremony, traditional foods, working with wood and natural fibres.” The exhibition runs from September 25 2013 through February 16 2014.
This is the last week for Haisla artist Lyle Wilson’s exhibition Paint! at the Bill Reid Gallery before it closes on September 15 2013. The final program, at 2 pm on Saturday September 14, is Lyle Wilson’s Lost Essay in the British Museum. Wilson will speak about the evolution of the art of the Pacific Northwest coast based on his study of the works from the important collection of the British Museum.
