Scope note(s)

  • July 10, 2007 - April 28, 2008. Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas mixes it up at MOA with three site-specific installations inspired by the Museum’s current Renewal Project. Michael’s works incorporate media as diverse as car hoods and copper leaf (“Coppers from the Hood”), argillite dust and an entire canoe-bearing Pontiac Firefly (“Pedal to the Meddle”), and archaeology storage trays and Haida manga (“Bone Box”). In the process, he brings his own brand of humour, narrative, and social commentary to jumpstart new debates in the Museum’s changing spaces. Installations curated by Karen Duffek, Curator, Contemporary Visual Arts. Thanks to Canada Council for the Arts for their support of this project.
