Dean Drever’s Pass the Hat

November 25, 2022 - April 16, 2023

Dean Drever’s Pass the Hat is 16 feet and made of 10,686 pieces of paper. It is a documentation of the strength of the Haida First Nation while addressing its fragility due to colonial practices of oppression.

Pass the Hat (paper) reconstitutes traditional totem pole construction through contemporary industrial processes. It does the same with industrial and digital processes themselves by transposing the subordinate position of culture to technology. In this way it encompasses and addresses changing practices and points to the interpenetration of industry and culture, imagination and reason.
