CURRENT EXHIBITIONS:

SDING K’AWXANGS – HAIDA: Supernatural Stories

Until October 27, 2019

The exhibition, featuring a remarkable selection of rare historical Haida art objects from the Museum’s collections, reveals a slice of this people’s rich heritage. Most of the objects were collected in 1878 by George Mercer Dawson on his travels through the Haida Gwaii archipelago. Contemporary Haida artists are continually exploring the ancient language of their art; it is the foundation on which new endeavours are built and the grammar with which future histories are written.

Works by seven contemporary Haida artists selected by guest curator Kwiaahwah Jones round out the exhibition. Several of the contemporary works will be created especially for the occasion.

Wearing our Identity. The First Peoples Collection

Permanent Exhibition
