Curator to talk about artist’s work

Insightful talk on the exhibition Kesu´: The Art and Life of Doug Cranmer

The curator of an exhibit opening at the Museum Oct. 19 will delve into the meaning behind her exhibition.

Join the Museum on Saturday, Oct.20, from 1 – 2:30 p.m., for an insightful talk on the exhibition Kesu´: The Art and Life of Doug Cranmer.

The talk, entitled Reflections on Exhibiting Kesu, will be given by the curator of the exhibition, Dr. Jennifer Kramer, and will address aspects of Cranmer’s life and artwork. This will be an excellent opportunity to dig more deeply into the iconography of Cranmer’s work and explore the underlying motifs contained within the art.

Dr. Kramer holds a joint position at the University of British Columbia as curator of the Pacific Northwest and associate professor in the department of Anthropology.

In conjunction with this exhibition she published Kesu’: The Art and Life of Doug Cranmer with Douglas & McIntyre Press (2012).  She has worked with the Nuxalk Nation of Bella Coola, B.C. since 1994 and the Kwakwaka’wakw since 2004, collaborating on the care and curation of their cultural heritage in the collections at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC.  The cost for the talk is $6. Call the Museum at 287-3103 to reserve a seat.
