Documenting First Nations Cultures of the Northwest Coast


Course description

In this course, we will examine four artists who committed themselves to creating an “Indian Collection”: Paul Kane, born in Ireland; Edward Curtis, born in the USA; Emily Carr, born in Victoria; and Arthur Pitts, born in London, England (but lived most of his life on the Saanich Peninsula). While Kane, Carr and Pitts documented their individual experiences with First Nations people in paintings and sketches, Curtis created his record through the medium of photography. We will explore the work of each artist as well as the particular context for the creation of his or her “Indian Collection”.

Each lecture will include abundant images from public and private collections.
