Last night Dr. Curtis Collins, Director & Chief Curator of the Audain Art Museum joined Chief Dean Nelson of the Lil’wat Nation and Carla George of the Squamish Nation in welcoming Hereditary Haida Chief James Hart to the traditional shared lands of the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations. The historic Dance of the Screen ceremony was a critical cultural moment for British Columbia and Canada. 📷: @toddeasterbrook

Welcome #UBCM2018! Look for the Audain nestled within a forested enclave adjacent to Whistler’s day parking lots. The stunning architecture by @patkauarchitects and the impressive art collections are not to be missed.

Brian Jungen is a B.C. born artist who re-purposes material objects and incorporates them into artwork. For this piece, Jungen cut up and organized Nike Air Jordans in a very symmetrical and deliberate way, with the colours of the shoe and the arrangement evoking similarities to First Nations masks from the British Columbian coast.
