Zu Leben und Werk: C a r l B e a m b. 1943, West Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario First Nations Affiliation: Ojibwa Beam graduated with a B.F.A. from the University of Victoria in 1974, and continued his studies in an M.F.A. programme at the University of Alberta, where he forged a sophisticated practice and an international career in the vanguard of Post-modernism with multimedia paintings, prints, and constructions. His work is generally characterized by the juxtaposition of autobiographical, commercial, photographic, and art historical references, evoking the dissonances between Euroamerican and Native cultures. In New Mexico in 1980, Beam mastered Anasazi pottery techniques and a decade later applied adobe rammed earth architecture to the construction of ecologically-sound buildings on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. On commission, Beam constructed a large-scale work, Exorcism, for the Thunder Bay Art Gallery and was artist in residence at Artspace in Peterborough, Ontario, in 1988. Two years earlier, his painting The North American Ice-berg became the first Native artwork purchased by the National Gallery of Canada (in Ottawa, Ontario) since 1927.
