Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art presents the Canadian premiere of XIÁM from February 7 – May 19, 2024. Curated by BRG guest curator Jordanna George, the striking exhibition combines traditional storytelling and the contemporary medium of comics through the work of five Indigenous artists who come from a range of backgrounds across the Northwest Coast: Jordanna George (T’sou-ke), Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas (Haida), Gord Hill (Kwakwaka’wakw), Whess Harman (Carrier Wit’at), and Cole Pauls (Tahltan). While comics have only recently begun to be widely seen as a sophisticated form of art and literature, they have a long history of acting as a tool for people on the fringes of society to share education, news, lived experiences, opinions, or a much-needed laugh. XIÁM includes traditionally drawn works alongside digital pieces, both English and native languages, humour, and drama. XIÁM in the SENĆOŦEN language means “to tell stories, specifically fictional or traditional stories.” Admission information and a full list of events and registration details at: billreidgallery.ca
