Mu’la || Gratitude

John Albert Sharkey (Guy), Chuck Jules, Shawn Decaire, and Jennifer Joseph

Curated by: Nadine Bariteau

January 28 to April 29, 2023 in our Satellite Gallery

Mu’la means Gratitude in Kwakwala. This state of appreciation fosters a sense of our collective responsibility and shared humanity. Each artist’s work is a manifestation of their gratitude. Chuck Jule’s gratitude goes to the people of the Hive, the space where he practices his art. Jennifer Joseph is truly grateful for the teachings passed down from her ancestors, particularly those shared by her mother and grandmother with whom she learned to weave. Guy Sharkey’s gratitude goes toward Beau Dick, his mentor for 30 years, who taught him the traditional way of carving. Finally, Shawn wants to pay tribute to the late Georges Lewis who taught him 20 years ago to make his very first Manat’si (drum).

This exhibition is a reminder that everyday we can be thankful for someone or something that has come across our path, and this makes room for the power and possibility of change.
