Rodney Graham, That's Not Me

24 November 2017 - 18 February 2018
Main†Galleries, West Wing
†Rodney Graham, Basement Camera Shop circa 1937 , 2011, Painted aluminum lightbox with transmounted chromogenic transparency, 182 x 182 x 17.7 cm.

Since the early 1980s, Canadian Rodney Graham has shown himself to be a distinctive artist whose diverse practice encompasses many things Ė a painter, photographer, sculptor, video-maker, actor, performer, producer, historian, writer, poet, sound engineer and musician.†Defying easy categorisation, his works are informed by psychology, literature and story-telling. His cyclical narratives are layered with puns and references as various as Lewis Carroll, Sigmund Freud, Raymond Roussel and Kurt Cobain, and are all infused by a sense of humour that betrays Grahamís place in the post-punk scene of late 1970s Vancouver. Avant-garde experimentation has always informed Grahamís practice demonstrated here with a survey of film works and an important presentation of photographic light boxes

Astute, contained and profound, Grahamís work has a strong contemporary relevance. This major exhibition includes work made from 1993 through to the present, and is organised in partnership with the Baltic Centre, Gateshead.
