Twenty years since Yuxweluptun’s first major Canadian solo show, this significant exhibition will feature colourful and politically charged artworks, which will each confront the colonialist suppression of First Nations people, and the ongoing struggle for Indigenous rights to lands, resources, and sovereignty.
Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun: Unceded Territories is on display at the Museum of Anthropology from May 10 – October 16, 2016.
Curated by Karen Duffek (MOA Curator, Contemporary Visual Arts & Pacific Northwest) and Tania Willard (artist and independent curator, Secwepemc Nation), Unceded Territories will feature over 60 paintings, drawings, and works in other media taken from Yuxweluptun’s 30-year career. These artworks will depict hard-hitting and polemical representations of the environment and the history of colonization, painted in Yuxweluptun’s playful and vibrant artistic aesthetic. Works will visualize the progression of Yuxweluptun as both an artist and an activist, while furthering dialogue around major issues facing Indigenous people today.
A pair of passes to the Museum of Anthropology from May 10 – October 16, 2016.
