Sonny Assu : A Selective History
July 26 to November 24, 2018
Sonny Assu is known for his esthetic interventions which call to mind tags (graffiti); boasting abstract and ovoidal shapes, they are distinctive of Northwest coast iconography, acting as a claim to First Nations cultures, despite Canada’s repeated efforts to assimilate such cultures.
Also known for his sense of humour and his subversive works, the artist bases his practice on the exploration of consumption, colonization and imperialism.
