Ken Lum

By Grant Arnold, Okwui Enwezor, Roland Schoeny
$55.00




A major retrospective of one of Canada's most widely recognized contemporary artists.

Over the past 25 years, Vancouver-based artist Ken Lum has developed a large body of work that includes painting, sculpture, performance and photography. He has exhibited throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and his awards include a Hnatyshyn Foundation Visual Arts Award. This richly illustrated volume is the first full-length book devoted to Ken Lum's work in more than nine years. In this time, his work has shifted to large permanent public installations, among them his fourth permanent public installation opening in 2010 in the Netherlands. Ken Lum accompanies a large-scale exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery that celebrates Lum's entire career and showcases aspects of his work-such as the mazes created for Documenta 11 and the Istanbul Biennal-that have never been seen before in North America.

This book was published in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery.
