November 11 – December 16, 2023
Reception: Thursday, November 16, 5–8 pm
ArtQuarters Gallery, 1057 St.Clair Avenue West, Toronto
Norval Morrisseau, West Coast Masks, and Inuit Sculpture was curated by Marcello Tarantino from a collection of works he acquired over the 1990s through interaction and friendships formed with Indigenous artists Norval Morriseau, Manasie Akpaliapik, and others. In this exhibition, Tarantino reflects on his admiration of Indigenous talent across Canada. Also featured in the exhibit are Manasie whalebone sculptures and West Coast masks by W Sampson, Stanley Clifford Hunt, and Dan Wallace.
For Morriseau’s solo show at the National Gallery of Canada in 2006, Norval and Marcello co-designed an apparel line sold at the National Gallery and the Smithsonian in New York. A limited selection of these pieces, including foulards and ties, will also be available at the exhibit.
