Museum of Vancouver (MOV), in partnership with Haida Gwaii Museum, presents a world-class collection of Haida Art on display in its entirety for the first time. Enter to four passes to Haida Now - on view March 16, 2018.
Guest curated by Haida Curator Kwiaahwah Jones in collaboration with Viviane Gosselin Co-curator and Director of Collections & Exhibitions at MOV, the exhibition will feature more than 450 works by carvers, weavers, photographers and print makers, collected as early as the 1890s. For the past two years, Haida artists and knowledge holders have visited the vaults at MOV, and have helped the curatorial team with the process of documenting these artworks.
“We are so thankful to these artists for their generosity and willingness to share their knowledge and infectious excitement about their culture,” says Viviane Gosselin. “Their insight gives new meaning to this impressive collection of Haida art. Remarkable in its quality and scope, the collection has only been partially exhibited a few times over the last 80 years.”
An impressive group of local Haida Artists will share their insights and knowledge about the collection, providing visitors with the opportunity to experience a new, powerful way to engage with the worldview and sensibility of the Haida people while gaining greater appreciation for the role museums can play in the reconciliation movement.
Four adult passes to Museum of Vancouver ($76 Value). Non-transferable. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
