The Seriousness of Play

Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas

This exhibition explores the work of internationally celebrated visual artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas. His distinctive work twists and blends Haida art with a broad range of contemporary cultural references. In Red: A Haida Manga (2008), his award-winning graphic novel and large-scale mural, the artist draws on Manga aesthetic (an Asian style of comic). He blends it with western and indigenous stylistic elements to illustrate a story from his family's past. Surreal happenings and colourful characters permeate Yahgulanaas' artworks, and speak to an intersection of cultures that define the contemporary moment.
