Published on the occasion of the opening of the Contemporary Art Gallery in its new facility and the exhibition Ken Lum, May 4 to July 14, 2001. This publication features a forward by Keith Wallace, and essay Untitled(Ken) by Michael Turner.
This was one of the exhibitions featured at the opening of the CAG in its new facility at 555 Nelson Street. Vancouver artist Ken Lum is internationally recognized for his photo/text reworking of contemporary advertising and signage. His new work for the CAG simulated outdoor signs for ‘Mom & Pop’ businesses such as restaurants and muffler shops, combining stereotypical advertising language with personal, political and socially charged declarations.MORE
