The sublime watercolor paintings of Archibald Fairbairn (1888-1979) document the beauty of totem poles and communities during the early 20th century. This exhibition juxtaposes an idealistic painter’s postcolonial gaze with critical discourse from contemporary indigenous voices.

This exhibition was guest curated by Edwin Neel (BFA 2017).
