Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful

Edited with foreword and text by Wanda Nanibush. Text by Alanaise Onischin Ferguson, David Penney, Duke Redbird, Faye HeavyShield, Gerald Vizenor, Jamelie Hassan & Ron Benner, Jessica L. Horton, Kay WalkingStick, Mark A. Cheetham, Michael Bell, Stephen Borys.

Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful

Houle’s painting blends Western abstraction, postmodernism and conceptualism with First Nations art history and techniques, challenging expectations about Indigenous aesthetics

An extensive survey spanning more than 50 years, Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful celebrates Houle’s ongoing career as an internationally recognized Indigenous artist, curator and writer, calling attention to First Nations and settler-colonialist histories through the critical lens of his impressive oeuvre. Painful personal experiences from the time he spent in residential school as a youth are brought into sharp relief through painting. Houle’s visual commentary tackles global topics including commercial appropriation, Indigenous resistance movements, land rights, religion and war, among others. A leader in challenging systemic racial biases, Houle has played a significant role at successfully introducing Indigenous art and its relationship to the contemporary art world in Canada and beyond. Rare excerpts from the artist’s archive are featured alongside major scholarly texts, poetic writings and personal anecdotes from fellow prominent Indigenous thinkers and creators, offering new insights about an artist ahead of his time.
Robert Houle (born 1947) teaches at the OCADU and has collaborated on projects that seek to establish awareness of First Nations contemporary art, such as the Land, Spirit, Power exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada in 1992. He is represented by Kinsman Robinson Galleries in Toronto.


Featured image is "Red is Beautiful" (1970).

On Indigenous Peoples' Day, work from 'Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful'

On Indigenous Peoples' Day, work from 'Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful'

“In Memoriam” (1987) is reproduced from Robert Houle: Red Is Beautiful, published by DelMonico Books and Art Gallery of Ontario to accompany the major traveling exhibition currently on view at Smithsonian, National Museum of the American Indian. Featuring paintings, drawings and installations produced between 1970 and 2021, this is, astonishingly, the first major retrospective of the artist, curator, writer and activist’s work. “I wish to… proclaim Robert Houle as the ‘Father’ of contemporary art practiced by Indigenous creators who are now recognized by the art world at large,” noted Canadian poet Duke Redbird writes. “It was Houle who first posited that Indigenous art did not only belong in the category of folk art; rather, it could be favorably compared to the finest creations at the forefront of the broader modern and contemporary art scenes.” This book sets the record straight. continue to blog
