Kwakwaka’wakw Hereditary Chief Beau Dick draws on a deep knowledge of ceremonial Kwakwaka’wakw culture, giving us face-time with the mythological with a pantheon of masks. At the same time, Dick mediates the space between aesthetics, social utility, and the art for sale condition. Beau Dick, acclaimed as one of the Northwest Coast’s most versatile and influential carvers, was born in Alert Bay, BC in 1955. Beau passed away in 2017, and he is greatly missed by all as a teacher, a legendary artist and storyteller, family man, and friend.
