Challenging Traditions Opens at McMichael Gallery

May 2009

"Art of the Northwest Coast has re-emerged in the twenty-first century. Challenging Traditions: Contemporary First Nations Art of the Northwest Coast exhibition explores the art of nearly forty contemporary Northwest Coast artists. It examines the individual artistic interpretation each artist brings to their artwork based on their cultural and artistic traditions. It also looks at how these artists grapple with the challenges of interpreting traditional Northwest Coast design into the modern age."
