Beau Dick: Devoured By Consumerism
BEAU DICK: DEVOURED BY CONSUMERISM is the companion publication to the eponymous exhibition, recently at White Plains, New York, and travelling to Remai Modern, Saskatoon, this summer. The book reproduces a range of stunning masks by the late Kwakwaka’wakw artist, along with photos of the 2012 potlatch at which he ritually burned Atlakima masks in an open fire. While symbolizing the cycle of life, death and rebirth, Dick’s act also defi ed capitalism’s drive to buy and hoard. Edited by the show’s curator, LaTiesha Fazakas.
Co-published by Figure.1 and Fazakas Gallery.
