Bill Reid Gallery: To Speak With a Golden Voice — April 22–October 4, 2020
Bill Reid Gallery
The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art celebrates the milestone centennial birthday of Bill Reid (1920–1998) with an exhibition about his life and legacy, To Speak With a Golden Voice from April 22–October 4, 2020. Guest curated by Gwaai Edenshaw — considered to be Reid’s last apprentice — the group exhibition includes rarely seen artworks from the gallery’s core collection, pieces by contemporaries Robert Davidson and Beau Dick, and two new commissions by carver Cori Savard (Haida) and singer-songwriter Kinnie Starr (Mohawk). Through a deep exploration of his voice, process, lineage, and legacy, the special anniversary exhibition traces the iconic Haida artist’s lasting influence on Indigenous art and culture.
