Interface: The woven artwork of Jaad Kuujus

Interface explores the intricate textile works and cedar weavings of Kakwaka’wakw and Haida artist Jaad Juujus/Meghann O’Brien. Known for her ability to work in miniature and with very fine stitching, Meghann uses her artwork to both explore her Northwest Coast cultural heritage, and rebuild and maintain bonds with her community. She disrupts what is often seen as a distinct order between the contemporary and traditional by looking at how they are in conversation with each other in a non-linear way.

This exhibition will highlight some of her finest works done over the past ten years in the areas of basketry, Yeil Koowu (Raven's Tail) and Naaxiin (Chilkat) textiles.
