Robert Davidson: The Abstract Edge

02 Feb 2007 - 06 May 2007

This exhibition features paintings and sculptures by Robert Davidson, a leading contemporary Haida artist who works to expand and transform his understanding of Haida art and cultural practice through engagement with abstraction, reclaiming cultural knowledge, and developing a personal iconography in his art. The 30 works in the exhibition, dating from 1983 to the present, include acrylic paintings on canvas, paper, and deerskin drums, low-relief carved cedar panels, and sculptures in cedar and aluminum. Organized by the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia and circulated by the National Gallery of Canada
