Carl BEAM, Artist 1943-2005
Outspoken and fearless Ojibway master of collage left a body of work that did justice to the complexities of aboriginal identity in Canada. He made photography a staple of his art and infused it with his own experiences
By Sarah MILROY, Saturday, August 20, 2005, Page S11
A few weeks ago, when Carl BEAM's son-in-law Mark LAROCHELLE stood in the M'chigeeng community centre on Manitoulin Island to eulogize his father-in-law, he had a simple message: "I only had the opportunity to know Carl for seven years, but one of the things that I learned from him was to never be afraid to say what needed to be said."
Outspoken, articulate, passionate, defiant and occasionally cantankerous, Mr. BEAM leaves a huge hole in the Canadian cultural landscape. An Ojibway artist who made a lot of smoke and fire with his art and his statements about the Canadian art scene, he helped to create space for himself and for other first nations artists across the country, creating a body of work that did justice to the complexities of aboriginal identity in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Honoured this year with a Governor-General's Award for the Visual Arts, Mr. BEAM had been the subject of many exhibitions both at home and abroad, and his work resides in the collections of virtually every museum of scale in Canada.
Carl BEAM ended up in M'chigeeng, and he began his life there, too, though in those days it was called West Bay. Born the eldest of nine children, he scarcely knew his white father, Edward COOPER he died as a soldier during the Second World -- but his maternal grandfather, Domenic MIGWANS, took a strong hand in his upbringing. A powerful man in the community, he recognized the young boy's intelligence and drive. "They knew that it would be Carl's destiny to face the white world," says his wife, Ann BEAM (who is also an artist), so they elected to send him to Garnier Residential School in Spanish, Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Huron.
It proved to be both a privilege -- given the education he received (he was a very gifted student) -- and a curse. This forced period of assimilation into white, Christian culture was a dark chapter in his life that he was forever reluctant to discuss.
After this, Mr. BEAM landed a series of labouring jobs in the north, from firefighting to working in the Wawa steel mill. Only in his late 20s did he focus his ambitions on a career in art, attending first the Kootenay School of Art, then the University of Victoria and on to graduate studies at the University of Alberta. Of his decision to turn to art-making, Ann BEAM says: "He used to tell me that he just couldn't hold it off any longer."
Through his education, his world opened up through exposure to the works of contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. He absorbed their photo-transfer techniques and, like them, made found photography a staple of his art. Unlike them, he infused it with autobiography. "He put the personal and family stuff in," says Ann, "so that people could feel the humanness of his [aboriginal] subjects, so that they couldn't be abstracted."
As well, Mr. BEAM learned from the example of aboriginal artists such as the late Fritz Scholder, a Luiseno artist from the American Southwest. "Carl wanted to write his final graduate dissertation on Scholder, but the department said there was not enough material on the artist to make the subject qualify for study," recalls Ann. "That was it for Carl. He was out of there."
During these early years, Mr. BEAM had fathered five children with his first wife, Rejeanne ARCHAMBAULT, but the relationship collapsed. He met Ann in Toronto in 1979. The pair decamped to the American Southwest for a few years and spent a lot of time in the Pueblo community, developing what would be a lifelong interest in pottery. Later, they wound up in Peterborough, Ontario, where from 1983 to 1992 Mr. BEAM began to participate in the Canadian museum scene. His involvement in a number of seminal shows cemented his growing reputation: Altered Egos at Thunder Bay National Exhibition Centre and Centre for Indian Art (1984) Cross-Cultural Views at the National Gallery of Canada (a pioneering 1986 exhibition themed on resistance that combined non-native artists such as Hans Haacke and Jamelie Hassan with native artists such as Jane Ash Poitras and Robert Houle); Beyond History at the Vancouver Art Gallery (1989); Indigena at the Canadian Museum of Civilization (1992); and Land, Spirit, Power (also at the National Gallery, in 1992).
The National Gallery's acquisition of his painting The North American Iceberg in 1986 was an important moment for Mr. BEAM, signifying, for him, his successful penetration of hostile cultural territory previously occupied by only white artists. "It was not a donation. It was a purchase," remembers Ann, "and that made all the difference." The painting posited a rebuttal to a concurrent exhibition of Italian and German contemporary art at the Art Gallery of Ontario named the European Iceberg.
Says Diana NEMIROFF, then the National Gallery of Canada's curator of contemporary art and now the director of Carleton University Art Gallery: "Carl has a sense of humour, but he also had the sharp, critical sense that there was another Iceberg buried that we weren't paying attention to, and it involved battles, conquest, uneasy cohabitation." The acquisition represented a breakthrough. Says Ms. NEMIROFF: "It signalled the gallery's intention to look seriously at a whole generation of native artists who were dealing with aboriginal cultural issues in an absolutely contemporary way."
The BEAMs lived in Peterborough until their return to Manitoulin Island in 1992, settling finally into an adobe house they built with their own hands.
The art Mr. BEAM made along the way constitutes one of the great cultural documents of our changing political landscape. There's his Columbus Suite (1989-1990), a group of 12 etchings that responded to the quincentennial of the landing of the explorer on North American soil. (The series is currently being exhibited in a small, honorary exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.)
On Mr. BEAM's love of visual collage, Ms. NEMIROFF says: "Collage allowed him to make subjective leaps between bodies of knowledge that had always been kept separate."
Thus, he gives us the chiselled raptor-like profile of Abraham Lincoln above a row of black ravens (symbols of transformation). Sitting Bull and Einstein are pictured stacked atop one another. Various Ways to Travel in North America couples a space rocket preparing for liftoff with a scene of aboriginal ritual dance two views of celestial travel, joined at the seam.
A subsequent series, also created in response to the quincentennial, was Burying the Ruler. In it, you see the artist holding the simple measuring instrument, then the same instrument buried from view.
"The reference was to the Renaissance idea of man as the measure of all things," says first nations artist and curator Gerald McMASTER, who frequently worked with Mr. BEAM over the years. By man, of course, they meant European man. "Indians were invented in 1492," Mr. McMASTER continues. "Carl made work to contest that European view," commenting on the environmental and humanitarian implications of such rigid modes of rational thought. Instead of the straight ruler, Mr. BEAM proposed the triangle and the circle.
A later series, Great Whale of Our Being (2002), imagined the whale as a metaphor for all mankind in our moment of ecological peril, presenting the magnificent creature dismembered and violated, and also whole, free and powerfully alive in its natural element. Before his death, says Ann, he was working on a series called Crossroads, riffing on the Robert Johnson blues classic as a way of considering his own hybrid place between cultures.
It was this sort of complexity that fuelled his art. Powerfully particular in his cultural point of view as an aboriginal, Carl BEAM railed against the racial ghettoization of his art. "My work is not made for Indian people, but for thinking people," he wrote. "In the global and evolutionary scheme, the difference between people is negligible."
Carl Edward Migwans BEAM was born in West Bay, Ontario, on May 24, 1943. He died in M'chigeeng (formerly West Bay) on July 30, 2005, of complications arising from diabetes. He was 62.
He is survived by his wife, Ann, and by their daughter Anong and by four children from a previous marriage: Clinton, Laila, Carl Jr. and Jennifer. He also leaves his mother, Barbara Migwans BEAM, and siblings Lina, Leonard, Tom, Linda, Joan, Norma, Theresa, Loretta, and Marjorie, plus 11 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Veronica.
A memorial service will be held at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, 25 Caroline St. N., Waterloo, Ontario, on September 18, at 2 p.m.
From November 28 to January 29, 2006, the Carlton University Art Gallery will mount a Carl BEAM retrospective.
