LAWRENCE PAUL YUXWELUPTUN: UNCEDED TERRITORIES. Karen Duffek. Museum of Anthropology at UBC, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, 2016. Published in association with Figure 1 Publishing, Vancouver. 192 pp. 32 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781927958513 In English.
Publisher's description: Unceded Territories is a major and timely review of the work of Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, spanning thirty years of his painterly and polemical practice. It places the artist's concerns in dialogue with this moment in our shared histories. An artist of Cowichan and Okanagan descent, Yuxweluptun lives and works on unceded Coast Salish territories in Vancouver, British Columbia. He calls himself a history painter, a monumentalist, a modernist. Impassioned in his commitment to advance First Nations rights to the land and effect change, Yuxweluptun fuses art with political action -- he "paints freedom and equality". This retrospective includes brilliant commentary from Michael Turner, Lucy Lippard, Marcia Crosby, Glenn Alteen, a short-story by Jimmie Durham. In an extensive dialogue, curators Karen Duffek and Tania Willard discuss the meaning of Yuxweluptun's practice and place it in the context of the First Nations struggle for autonomy, justice, and environmental preservation. In a searing and powerful artist's statement, Yuxweluptun himself explains the essence of his painting and the forces that drive his artistic and political life.
