Sonny Assu in Dialogue with Emily Carr

Vancouver Art Gallery


We Come to Witness

Sonny Assu continues his ongoing body of work Interventions on The Imaginary, creating a new series of digital tags on a body of Emily Carr paintings selected from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s collection. Assu confronts the portrayal of Indigenous peoples as a vanishing race by interrupting Carr’s landscapes with an insertion of an ovoid and u-shapes. The exhibition will also include new and existing sculptural works from Assu in addition to a special collaboration with ceramic artist Brendan Tang. Read more.
