Out of Concealment ~ Female Supernatural Beings of Haida Gwaii
Opening reception: 7 pm June 16, 2017. Haida Gwaii Museum
Please join Haida artist and lawyer Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson in opening her new exhibition—supernatural in its own right—of female supernatural beings and crest images of Haida oral traditions. The audience is sure to delight in this critical, original and wonderous iteration of ancient histories and wisdom passed down through the generations.
Through combining the beauty of Haida Gwaii captured by local photographers, the art of Robert Davidson, and supernatural beings adorned by Indigenous designers—the feminine and powerful land and seascapes of Haida Gwaii are brought out of concealment, humanizing the land and sea, and showing they are worthy of respect, rather than domination and exploitation.
