An artist faces public opposition as she struggles to mount a large-scale exhibition of paintings based on a police poster of missing women, twenty-six of whom are found murdered on a serial killer’s farm. In 2006 Pamela Masik, a contemporary artist, set out to create a large-scale exhibition of paintings focused on women who went missing over the previous two decades on the streets of Vancouver. Titled “The Forgotten”, this powerful series of sixty-nine portraits would be based on a police task force poster of the missing women’s headshots.. In 2007, pig farmer Robert Pickton stood trial for the murders of twenty-six women whose remains were found at his farm and slaughterhouse. He would admit to an undercover police officer that he killed forty-nine. The twenty-six women identified as Pickton’s victims are included on the task force poster and form part of Masik’s work.. Over a six year period we follow Masik’s struggle to exhibit this collection of paintings, and the public outcry that ensues. All of this amidst a shocking murder trial; an inquiry into the police department’s failed investigation; and the families’ search for answers in Canada’s largest serial murder case in history..
