about this item

Through the art of Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, The Seriousness of Play explores the multiple forms, materialities and meaning of Haida Manga as it playfully mutates through repurposed automobile parts, large-scale public art projects, mixed media sculptures and two-dimensional painted and graphic forms.

Haida Manga combines traditional Native Northwest Coast designs and form-lines with manga (or manhwa) to create a distinctive and dynamic artform for re-telling oral histories and addressing contemporary issues surrounding land, cultural memory, ecological destruction and the politics of belonging, ownership and identity.
