LaTiesha Fazakas specialized in Northwest Coast Native Art while completing her degree in Art History at the University of British Columbia. During this time, she became an art dealer in a traditional Northwest Coast Art gallery. After a decade spent pushing that gallery to the next level, LaTiesha decided to break off and create her own gallery space. Her previous experience gave her the tools to establish Fazakas Gallery, an inclusive space that takes a curatorial approach and specializes in Northwest Coast and cross-cultural contemporary works.
LaTiesha’s expertise in curating has enhanced hundreds of collections worldwide. LaTiesha is responsible for many successful group and solo exhibitions. In 2017, LaTiesha was the Beau Dick curatorial coordinator for his participation in the international exhibition documenta 14 in Athens, Greece and Kassel, Germany. Most recently, she co-curated Beau Dick: Devoured by Consumerism with Matthew Higgsat White Columns, New York. The opening of that exhibition coincided with the publication of ‘Devoured by Consumerism’, a book showcasing the life and work of Beau Dick, produced in collaboration with Figure 1 Publishing. Essays by LaTiesha Fazakas, John Cussans, and Candice Hopkins examine the continued impact of Beau’s art and life.
LaTiesha has also ventured into film, first as a Consultant for Tornado Mountain Pictures’ “Savage Nights” (UK Film) and now as a writer, director and producer of the documentary film, Maker of Monsters: The Extraordinary Life of Beau Dick.
