Looking and Laughing: Ken Lum at the Vancouver Art Gallery
Volume 10, Number 6, November/December 2011
by Jamie Hilder
Ken Lum’s recent survey at the Vancouver Art
Gallery is reviewed by Jamie Hilder, who traces a distinct continuity in Lum’s employment of strategies that engage the viewer in a self-conscious and, at times, discomforting reading of his work. Lum demonstrates a particular propensity towards
combining humour with sobering sociocultural
issues that result in work that is immediately
approachable yet provocatively disorienting.
