12 Aug: Aaron Glass | Curating Franz Boas

Aaron Glass (BFA, 2000) has recently curated an exhibition in New York City on Franz Boas. Franz Boas is known as the founding figure of North American anthropology, and the exhibition highlights his work with George Hunt among the Kwakwaka’wakw in British Columbia. The exhibit was co-developed with the U’mista Cultural Centre in Alert Bay, BC, and features designs by Corrine Hunt, a renowned contemporary artist and great-granddaughter of George Hunt. On July 20, the exhibit opened at U’mista to much local fanfare and attendance by Hunt descendants, many of whom are well-known artists in BC.
