50 Years | 50 Stories

50 Years | 50 Stories

Equinox Gallery marks its 50th anniversary in 2022. To celebrate this institutional milestone and offer a glimpse into aspects of gallery life from the past 5 decades, we present 50 Years | 50 Stories, an eclectic mix of artworks that trigger significant triumphs and challenges, personal anecdotes, and creative strategies. As one of the anchors of the nation’s commercial art sector with over 400 exhibitions to its credit, we have represented many of Canada’s top talents in tandem with international artworld giants. Through a selection of works by artists who have been featured at the gallery, this exhibition is an opportunity to consider the gallery’s focus on developing artists’ careers in the context of larger and ever-shifting art world narratives.
While much has changed at the gallery over the past 50 years, our long-term relationships with artists and collectors (both public and private) remain central to the gallery’s ethos. It is by nurturing such deep-rooted connections that we are able to contribute to the significant role art plays in enriching people’s lives.
Thank you for your support over the past 50 years. We look forward to the next 50.

Sonny Assu
Omnibus

Sonny Assu
Omnibus

Equinox Gallery is delighted to present Omnibus, an exhibition of new works by Sonny Assu. In this exhibition, Assu is continuing to explore the way that language and myths can straddle multiple cultures and times by bringing together comics from his childhood and Assu’s classic pop culture sensibility with a Kwakwaka’wakw twist. The comics are all chosen for specific reasons — you can often find Indigenous references, for example Batman goes to Alaska and meets a Shaman, or a story focused on Warpath, an Apache Native American character and X-Men member. Assu has painted over the grid of comic books using bright colours and highlighting Indigenous ovoid and formline elements traditional to his culture. Assu’s conceptual influence for this body of work includes the work of Tim Rollins + K.O.S., Andy Warhol, and traditional Kwakwaka’wakw artists.
For a list of available works, please contact the gallery at (604) 736-2405 or info@equinoxgallery.com.

Tlakwa

Sonny Assu
Tlakwa

T̓łakwa is engaged with copper as its main subject in material, concept, and form. While maintaining a profound connection to past traditions, Assu’s practice emphasizes the intersections and boundaries of traditional Indigenous art within the larger realm of contemporary practices, bringing to light a complex conversation between established practices and unconventional approaches.
