Carl Beam was a powerful voice in contemporary art in Canada. A key Anishnaabe artist, he drew upon all the cultural resources at the disposal of a contemporary artist. This catalogue, exhibition and tour of fifty magnificent and challenging works by Beam, is the first such opportunity to view a selection of his paintings, constructions, ceramics and video that cover his entire artistic career.
