Ken Lum

Amir-Everything Must Go, 2000
Lacquer and enamel on aluminum and plexiglass
Ken Lum is one of Canada's leading international artists; he lives and works in Vancouver. The artist's rise to prominence as a world-renowned figure coincides with the increasing dominance of photo-based practices in contemporary art. He is primarily concerned with issues of identity. He wants to intervene aggressively in the public and social spaces where he exhibits. Much of his art practice explores the anxiety, confusion, and contradictions that arise when people of disparate backgrounds meet. If Canada's multicultural, New-World population of immigrants has provided much of the content for his work it is because he is interested in the interfaces where languages and cultures collide.
