Kwakwaka’wakw people are known for their ironic sense of humour and artists Beau Dick, Rande Cook, and Cole Speck are no exception. Being able to laugh at the world around you, as well as not taking yourself too seriously, is a cultural standard in Kwakwaka’wakw society. ‘Inappropriate’ is an exhibition in which these three artists will explore the irony and humour of their artistic practices.
These artists take up the camera’s lens and other mediums to document and express history, culture, and contemporary existence, reasserting the liveliness of their survival in the modern world.
