Carrying on Irregardless: Humour in Contemporary Northwest Coast ArtBill Reid Gallery, Exhibition Catalogue
"Humour and irony have been identified as defining characteristics of contemporary Native American and eastern Canadian First nations art...yet little attention has been paid to these qualities in the First Nations art of the Northwest Coast.
Carrying on "Irregardless": Humour in Contemporary Northwest Coast Art is the first exhibition that explore the broad stream of Aboriginal humour that flows through Northwest Coast art and life through the artworks of twenty-four mid-career and internationally recognized Northwest Coast artists plus two early, influential, modern artists, Ellen Neel (1916-1966) and Bill Reid (1920-1998)
[...] Most of the sixty artworks in the exhibition were produced during the last fifteen years; many have never been displayed before. They are a diverse scope of works including paintings, sculptures, drawings, masks, etchings, photographs, textiles, jewelry and video installations." - (Reid, Martine J., 2012: 6-7) Carrying on "Irregardless": Humour in Contemporary Northwest Coast Art
