Leading Canadian (Kwakwaka’wakw) artist Sonny Assu will be resident at the Sainsbury Centre from this summer hosted by the research project Beyond Spectacle: Native North American presence in Britain. Sonny’s work utilises both pop art and traditional North West coast practices to interrogate cultural identity and western constructions of indigenous culture. Drawing on the Sainsbury Centre collection and his own work, Sonny has curated a display for the East End. This coincides with a major display of his work at Canada House, London.
