The High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom and The Baldwin Gallery present: Sonny Assu: A Radical Mixing.

About

A citizen of the Liǥwildaʼxw (We Wai Kai) Kwakwaka’wakw Nations on the Northwest Coast of Canada, but raised in suburban Vancouver, it was not until Sonny Assu was eight years old that he learnt about his Indigenous roots.

His work has since been informed by a deep understanding of his heritage, radically remixing Kwakwaka’wakw iconography with western and pop aesthetics to counter misconceptions of Indigenous peoples and expose enduring legacies of colonization.

Curated by The Baldwin, this is the first solo presentation of Assu’s work in the UK and coincides with his residency at The Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts in Norwich.
