Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun's An Indian Act Shooting the Indian Act, Healey Estate, Northumberland, September 14th, 1997 will be on load to the UBC Museum of Anthropology for the exhibition Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun: Unceded Territories. Co-curated by Karen Duffek and Tania Willard, the exhibition runs from May 10 to October 16, 2016.
This major exhibition and coinciding publication promise colour and controversy, pop and Surrealist-inflected landscapes, ovoids, bullets, masked oil barons, spirit and abstraction in selected works that shape a politicized approach to Northwest Coast art. Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun is an artist of Salish and Okanagan descent who lives and works in Vancouver. He has been painting for over 30 years, driven largely by the imperative to honour Indigenous rights to the land. His contribution to discourses about modern Aboriginal and Northwest Coast art are pointed and polemical. From An Indian Act Shooting the Indian Act to his Manifesto of Ovoidism, Yuxweluptun's work makes explicit the colonial history of Canada as the condition within and against which he lives, works and paints.
