Sonny Assu

A Selective History

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Sonny Assu, with Candice Hopkins, Marianne Nicolson, Richard Van Camp, and Ellyn Walker

Through large-scale installation, sculpture, printmaking, and painting, Sonny Assu merges the aesthetics of Indigenous iconography with a pop-art sensibility. Featuring hundreds of full-colour works and commentary by leading Indigenous critics, this stunning retrospective explores themes of Indigenous rights, consumerism, humour, and the ways in which history informs contemporary ideas and identities. Sonny Assu: A Selective History is the first full-scale book to pay tribute to this prolific and vibrant figure in the Canadian contemporary art world.
