New exhibits open tonight at Langham Gallery in Kaslo

"Whuulhu: To Fuse Together" is a multimedia exhibition striking unique balances from a chaos of icons, images and media.

The Langham Gallery in Kaslo presents Whuulhu: To Fuse Together, a multimedia exhibition striking unique balances from a chaos of icons, images and media. Through a fusion of contemporary and traditional mediums, Bracken H’anuse Corlett explores his ancestral language of Wuikila, and colonial consequence.

Corlett is a Northwest Coast based multimedia artist and a member of the Wuikinuxv, Heiltsuk, and Klahoose peoples. His work deals with themes of cultural reclamation and survival, identity politics, hybridity, and decolonization. Much of his work is relevant to his Northwest Coast Indigenous roots and explores the stories, language, songs and art of his people. He is also inspired by art movements of agit-pop, manga and dada.

This exhibition is a compendium of Corlett’s myriad talents and is an excellent introduction to those not already familiar with his work. His is an important voice on the artistic landscape, Langham Gallery is proud to be showing his work until October 6.

The opening event will be held tonight, August 23, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the main gallery in conjunction with the opening of Sign of Age by artist Carlton Temple in the Community Gallery.
