May 3–August 3, 2024 Main Gallery Curator: Gaëlle Morel
This exhibition, comprising seminal series along with new works, celebrates the career of Canadian artist Ken Lum. Winner of the 2023 Scotiabank Photography Award, Lum is internationally known for his conceptualist approach, particularly his various signature series of photographic portraits paired with concise, slogan-like written texts. The artist’s humoristic and impactful practice investigates the relationship between language and representation in the public space. By doing so, Lum critically challenges social hierarchies and dominant narratives related to identity, class, and gender, always at play in capitalistic and postcolonial societies.
Ken Lum is represented by Magenta Plains, New York, and Royale Projects, Los Angeles.
