Beau Dick

Fazakas Gallery, To Dec 16

by Robin Laurence

This posthumous exhibition focuses on the 18 Undersea Kingdom masks that the great Kwakwaka’wakw artist created on commission for documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany this past spring and summer. The show honours Dick’s accomplishments and his legacy while also serving as a powerful companion event to multiple Vancouver International Film Festival screenings of Meet Beau Dick: Maker of Monsters by LaTiesha Ti’si’tla Fazakas and Natalie Boll.
