To Speak With a Golden Voice
The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art re-opens and celebrates the centennial birthday of Bill Reid (1920–1998) with an extraordinary exhibition about his life and legacy, To Speak With a Golden Voice from July 16, 2020 to April 11, 2021. Guest curated by Gwaai Edenshaw — considered to be Reid’s last apprentice — the group exhibition includes rarely seen artworks from private collections and from the gallery’s core collection, works by contemporaries, including Robert Davidson and Beau Dick, and two new commissions by artist Cori Savard (Haida) and singer-songwriter Kinnie Starr (Mohawk/Dutch/German/Irish). Through a deep exploration of his voice, process, lineage, and heritage, the special anniversary exhibition traces the iconic Haida artist’s lasting influence on Indigenous art and culture.
