Dempsey Bob: In His Own Voice features work from Wolves: The Art of Dempsey Bob exhibition
Dempsey Bob: In His Own Voice is based on the first full-scale solo museum exhibition of this extraordinary Tahltan-Tlingit artist, one of the finest living carvers of the Northwest Coast. Drawing from extensive interviews with the artist by the exhibition's co-curator, Sarah Milroy, the book presents the story of his life told his own way, including extensive and intimate reflections on the creation of particular works.
Gorgeous photographs of the Skeena Valley region and of the artworks – which had been gathered from key private and museum collections in Canada and the US - are supplemented with material from the artist’s scrapbooks and family archives to create a vivid portrait of the creative process.
Foreword by co-curator Sarah Milroy. In collaboration with the McMichael Canadian Art Collection & the Audain Art Museum
