In Dialogue with Emily Carr: Sonny Assu

Sonny Assu continues his developing body of work, Interventions on the Imaginary, by 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 ovoid and u-shapes. The exhibition will also include new and existing sculptural works by Assu, in addition to a special collaboration with ceramic artist Brendan Tang. The complementary workshop will use mixed media.
