Dana Claxton: Fringing The Cube
Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Feb 3, 2019
This much-anticipated exhibition surveys the career of internationally acclaimed media artist Dana Claxton. Based in Vancouver, of Hunkpapa Lakota heritage, she often uses formally beautiful and emotionally gripping imagery to engage viewers in ideas surrounding Indigenous history, identity and culture. Whether working in film, photography, video, performance or text, Claxton dismantles stereotypes while also provoking us to reconsider the social construction of gender, landscape and the body.
