Abstract (English)

Published on the occasion of an exhibition which brings together Neel's powwow photographs and mask carvings, this catalogue contains: a curatorial essay by Hunter which focuses on the Kwagiutl artist's use of a traditional First Nations art form (mask making) to explore contemporary political, economic and social issues affecting Native peoples; an essay by Neel which considers the history of Northwest Coast Native art in relation to Modernism. The artist also provides a brief introduction to his "Powwow Series" of photographic diptychs. Biographical notes on the curator. 33 bibl. ref.
