Carl Beam



Scope note(s)

  • April 7 - May 29, 2011 (The Audain Gallery)
  • Carl Beam (1943-2005) was born in M’Chigeeng (West Bay) on Manitoulin Island. Of Ojibway heritage, the artist has exerted a strong influence on a whole generation of Aboriginal artists and has been instrumental in the development of the art of Canada’s First Nations. He is renowned for his powerful combinations of highly charged images from his personal Anishinaabe aesthetic, which is more akin to the expressive layering of Rauschenberg than the traditional forms of Anishinabek “Woodland School” painters. The exhibition, curated by Greg Hill, and organized by the National Gallery of Canada, features a selection of 50 of Beam’s most remarkable works spanning his 30-year career, from his monumental-scale paintings and constructions, to his ceramics and video.
