Robert Davidson is an internationally renowned multidisciplinary artist who is critically engaged in the contemporary arts and deeply rooted in Haida cultural expression. Davidson is a vital force in the Haida community and an advocate for First Nations culture, education, ceremony, politics and art and also shares cultural knowledge with broader multi-cultural communities.
'Robert Davidson: Progression of Form' is a multi-faceted project which will explore Davidson's latest artwork within the context of the current landscape of contemporary Canadian art and Davidson's cultural and artistic history. Comprised of a three-month art exhibition, an exhibition catalogue, programs, workshops & performances, the project will recognize the importance of the integration of the visual and performing arts and their intrinsic relationship with culture, ceremony, and Haida identity. The exhibition will showcase twenty of Davidson's most recent paintings, four epoxy-coated aluminum sculptures, two new masks, two totem poles and a house post to be finished specifically for the exhibition.
