Description

As a parliamentary declared national symbol, the beaver holds special relevance for Canadians. For long over a century in Canada, the beaver’s image symbolized industriousness and reliability. This exhibition, curated by Reid Diamond and Marnie Fleming, references and elaborates on this narrative by drawing a brief history that places the beaver’s image into modern politics and contemporary image-making. Diamond and Fleming posit a versatile and multi-faceted icon, using the works of 14 national and international artists, including Kim Adams, Mary Anne Barkhouse, Michael Belmore, Wendy Coburn, Fastwürms, Bud Fujikawa, Frank Gehry, Komar and Melamid, Liz Magor, Carl Skelton, Kathryn Walter, Joyce Wieland and Jin-me Yoon.

Introduction by Francine Périnet. Texts by Marnie Fleming and Reid Diamond.
