Carl Beam
22 OCTOBER 2010 – 16 JANUARY 2011
GALLERIES B102, B103 AND B104Carl Beam (1943-2005) is renowned for his powerful combinations of highly charged images from his personal Anishinaabe aesthetic, which is more akin to the expressive layering of Rauschenberg than the traditional forms of Anishinabek “Woodland School” painters. The exhibition features a selection of 50 of Beam’s most remarkable works spanning his 30-year career, from his monumental-scale paintings and constructions, to his ceramics and video.
