The Laxgiik Convocation Robe
Luke Parnell & Selected Prints by Working Title Press
Curated by Erica Cristobal
The Laxgiik Convocation Robe is an installation created in the style of a Northwest coast Indigenous Chilkat blanket. This project is capturing the spirit in which these prestigious blankets are given: the spirit of reciprocity. Prints will be sold and removed from the installation one by one; the Robe will be ever changing until the last print is sold.
Proceeds will be donated to Printmaking, Publications, Sculpture / Installation & Indigenous Visual Culture programs at OCAD U.
