This exhibition catalogue was published on the occasion of Brian Jungen’s exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery from July 28 to September 23, 2001. The catalogue includes essays by Scott Watson and Lindsay Brown with a forward by Keith Wallace.
Brian Jungen transforms everyday commodities into convincing sculptural objects, often with references to First Nations art and culture. At the CAG, Jungen created two new works: One recast the lowly and ubiquitous shipping palette in precious and symbol-rich polished red cedar. Jungen also erected a construction hoarding outside the gallery, with cut-outs looking out to the city skyline and toward the city’s rapid re-development.MORE
