Prairie Art Book Fair books dancing back and forth

NDN-BEBOP a.k.a. Whess Harman
Territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh 

NDN-BEBOP a.k.a. Whess Harman will be selling a variety of embroidered patches, riso prints and self-published chapbooks and perzines. Their work focuses on their Indigeneity, queerness and a generalized but evocative, sniping melancholy that the galleries go wild for.

Whess Harman is Carrier Wit’at, and is currently living and working on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh. Their multidisciplinary practice includes beading, illustration, poetry and curation. As a mixed-race, trans/non-binary artist they work to find their way through anxiety and queer melancholy with humour and carefully mediated cynicism.

Feature items:
Land Back patch
Indian Famous patch
Hold the Abyss zine
