Beau Dick

Devoured by Consumerism

LaTiesha Fazakas. In collaboration with the Fazakas Gallery

Accompanying an exhibition of Beau Dick’s work, this beautifully illustrated volume distills his powerful argument against our unsustainable way of living.

“Everything gets devoured, devoured, devoured.”

—Wayne Alfred, Kwakwaka’wakw carver and friend of Beau Dick

Book Description

Devoured by Consumerism is the last exhibition conceived by Beau Dick. By sharing works inspired by the Kwakwaka’wakw Winter Ceremonies, Beau hoped to spark change in a world devouring itself under the ravenous pressures of capitalism.
