Glory And Exile: Haida History Robes Of Jut-ke-nay Hazel Wilson

Examines the life and career of this esteemed textile artist, with a spotlight on the 51 large narrative works she created in the last 15 years of her life. Born on Haida Gwaii and chosen in childhood to be a maker of traditional button blankets, Wilson later reinvented their making and materials to produce figurative robes depicting Haida stories and beliefs, from both pre- and post-contact times. Her “history robes” display her originality of expression and celebrate the strength and resilience of her people and culture.
