'Challenging Traditions: Contemporary First Nations Art of the Northwest Coast' is a recent exhibition organized by Ian Thom, who is currently a senior curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The show, which originally opened at Ontario's McMichael Gallery in June of 2009, is comprised of over seventy contemporary artworks that have been assembled to demonstrate some of the current, complex trends taking place within Native art on the West Coast.
'Challenging Traditions' has been travelling through the US and Europe, and it is now in BC! The show will be running at The Reach Gallery in Abbotsford until October 3, 2010. The exhibition features more than forty artists, including artists that Lattimer Gallery has always represented, such as Phil Gray, Jay Simeon, Alano Edzerza and Steve Smith. We are now carrying the beautiful and extensive catalogue for the show, which can be found on our website.
