Two Centuries of Haida Art

THE CORE OF THIS ASSEMBLAGE of powerful work is an exploration of the extraordinary achievement of Haida art, as art. Interwoven throughout the text and finely reproduced images is a skillful intermingling of key themes: the defining myths of origins; the structures of ownership and privilege; the relationship of the people to the land; the influence of the early master-carvers; the monumental achievements of Charles Edenshaw, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson and many others; the Haida and colonialism; hybrid tendencies in contemporary Haida art. From oral histories and genealogies to the breakout aesthetics of contemporary Haida work in many media, this is a book that will resituate a great art in a contemporary context.
