from-buffalo-meat-bill-quinn-and-his-artworkThis powerful series of artwork by longtime DTES resident and First Nation elder Bill Quinn is the result of a lifetime of experience on the underside of colonialism. Bill’s collages make an unequivocal statement about the nature of imperialism and global capitalism and the impact these forces have had on the indigenous people of the world. Fifteen years ago Bill took an original approach to collage art, and began to transcribe his rich understanding of contemporary society into a visual discourse that layers tragedy and humour into this one-of-a-kind exploration of the journey – and the story – of buffalo meat to baloney. Today is an opportunity to share some time with Bill and his work.
